PLEASE SAVE THE DATE and arrange the babysitters for our mandatory parent-only All School Meeting. This is Little Wonders’ annual business meeting and will give parents an opportunity to network with other parents offering services, meet staff and board members, understand our annual budget and fundraising efforts, and meet our outreach partners. We will also have a fabulous guest speaker! NOTE: One representative from each Little Wonders family is required to attend the All School Meeting. If you cannot attend this meeting you must email your teacher to discuss make-up options.
NEW DISCUSSION CYCLE #8
Our Spring semester begins this coming week with a new set of discussions focused on the socialization and conflict. Staff will post documents to Konstella. Please note that all staff are shifting up groups to mix things up a bit, so rotations will change. New spring schedules will be posted in Konstella.
COMMUNITY SERVICE OPPORTUNITY - LOVED TWICE
Loved Twice is a Bay Area non-profit working to clothe local newborns-in-need with quality gently used baby clothing. We will be collecting baby clothes until January 23rd. Please drop off your donations at Little Wonders. They accept new and gently used baby clothes in sizes up to 12 months ONLY. Blankets, hats, socks, bibs and board books are welcome too.
CPR CLASS- SPACE AVAILABLE
Our January CPR class scheduled for Tuesday January 28th 7-9 PM still has openings. We need a minimum of six people to run the class, and should this class need to be cancelled we will not be offering CPR classes in the future. Sign up here.
NORWEX ONLINE PURCHASING PARTY 1/20-1/30
Many of you have asked about purchasing Norwex supplies for your own homes...here’s your opportunity! We will share the link to online information and information about the purchasing party via Konstella this weekend.
Each teacher will be taking 5 minutes at the beginning of each discussion group to go over the use of Norwex in the classroom. Please feel free to read the attached documentation (we also shared some at the beginning of the year) that explains our change from bleach to this safer non-toxic alternative. As always, please reach out if you have any questions.
SPRING REGISTRATION IS OPEN
There is a new session of Baby Play starting Tuesday, January 21st. This parent support class is for infants 3-9 months old as of January 1st.
There is also a new, “older baby” class starting on Friday, January 24th. This class, called “Friday PM,” is the next step for families that were in Baby Play in the fall, and also open to anyone with a child 8-14 months of age. We need a few more children for each of these classes to run, so please spread the word to friends with infants that Little Wonders is the place to be!
MAVERICK JACK’s RESTAURANT FUNDRAISER
Need the perfect excuse not to make dinner? Join us Wednesday, January 29th at Maverick Jack’s. A fun way to have dinner and support Little Wonders! The school will receive 20% of all dine in or carry out orders from 11am-9pm. Don’t forget your flyer (attached)!
LOOKING FOR DAYTIME ACTIVITIES TO DO WITH YOUR LITTLE ONE(S)?
Our latest blog post includes a super-handy list of local activities for infants and toddlers. From free storytimes at local libraries to paid indoor play spaces to music classes, you are sure to find something new to try!
Are you planning to come back to Little Wonders next year? Do you want to give back even if your little one is graduating? We’ll soon be recruiting for next year’s board and will be looking for those that exhibit leadership skills and are well organized. There will be a table at the All School Meeting where you can speak with current board members and ask any questions you have.
