RESERVE YOUR SPACE NOW - PARENT TO PARENT NETWORKING OPPORTUNITY
Time is running out to reserve your spot at our Parent-to-parent Networking portion of our All School Meeting on Thursday, February 6th. 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.


REGISTRATION IS OPEN FOR CCPPNS CONVENTION - MARCH 6 and 7

Our local Council is hosting the annual state-wide convention for cooperative preschools. Meant for both parents and teachers and focused on early childhood development and early learning, this annual two-day convention offers informative lectures and educational workshops along with a variety of vendors. This year's keynote speakers are Teacher Tom, an expert on play-based curriculum, and Michele Borba, an internationally recognized educator whose work focuses on strengthening children's character and resilience.

Early Bird rate of $125 applies through January 15 (for 2-day registration only) so register soon! If you'd like to help out during the event and get a significant discount on registration, contact Sandy at council@littlewonders.org

Go to bit.ly/2020_parents for more information and to register.  Little Wonders will be closed that Friday to allow staff and any parents interested to attend. Don’t miss this amazing opportunity to put more “tools” in your parenting toolbox! 

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. 

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, Wednesday PM and Wednesday Evening classes as well.
