RESERVE YOUR SPACE NOW - FEBRUARY LITTLE WONDERS ALL SCHOOL MEETING and PARENT TO PARENT NETWORKING OPPORTUNITY

Anyone currently enrolled at Little Wonders who would like to share their business or services with fellow Little Wonders families should consider the Parent to Parent networking opportunity at the All School Meeting. The meeting will take place on Thursday, February 6th, 2020 and the P2P Networking will be from 6:30-7:40pm and from 9:15-9:45pm for those who want to stay.

 

Parents can purchase a table for $25 and share their business and/or services with all our families prior to and after our business meeting and speaker. Our currently enrolled families have until January 11th for priority on table space. After that date, others from the community are welcome to sign up and take whatever tables are left. Sign up early to get your spot. Email parent-to-parent networking coordinator lex@riekes.org.

 

NEW IDEAS FOR AT-HOME INDOOR PLAY
It can be a challenge for our toddlers to burn enough energy during these shorter, colder and wetter winter days. Our latest blog post gives many ideas for at-home indoor activities for our little ones to play, explore and even help around the house!

 

UPCOMING SCHOOL WASH: JANUARY 11, 2020 (FRIDAY AM AND WEDNESDAY EVE), 1-3 PM

The next school wash for the Friday AM and Wednesday Evening classes is coming up on Saturday, January 11 from 1-3 PM at Little Wonders. Only one parent needs to attend and no children please. This is a fun opportunity to meet others in your class and to make sure the school is kept clean and safe for our little ones.  

If you cannot make this date, please contact facilities@littlewonders.org to reschedule. You may reschedule for one of the next two washes or pay the $175 buy-out. We thank you in advance for following through on this co-op commitment.  

 

GRATITUDE CORNER 

Special thanks to Regina Chin, our Community Service Coordinator and her team, Greicy, Karen and Maggie and all of YOU!!! With your help and generosity we were able to adopt 13 families and grant all their wishes, WORTH OVER $3,000. Please know you have all contributed to making someone else’s holiday very special. THANK YOU!!!  

A huge thanks to tech team members Karsten Martiny and Mark Whitehouse for their help behind the scenes with our Formstack forms and Evites.  

Our Development Co-chairs Nesa Bergman and Kristen Follis also deserve recognition for their tireless dedication to raising funds for Little Wonders. Our first ever pay to play parents’ afternoon/evening out was a huge success. Parents got some time away to celebrate an anniversary, shop or just have some time without kids, and the kids all had a great time here.  Staff and National Charity League volunteers had a great time playing with and entertaining the kids. Some even got potential babysitting jobs! Stay tuned for for a repeat of this event in the Spring! 

A NEW SEMESTER BRINGS NEW CLASSES 

Our second semester begins the week of January 20th and with that we plan to start two new classes. For parents of babies 3-9 months old (as of January 1, 2020)  we will start a Spring Baby Play on Tuesdays 12:30-2 PM and for parents of young toddlers 10-15 months we are offering a Friday PM class from noon-2 PM. Please do share these opportunities with your family, friends and social networks. We still have space in Monday AM, Friday AM and the Wednesday PM classes as well.
