PHOTO/VIDEO POLICY REMINDER

With the new term starting soon, and the introduction of the Little Wonders Instagram account, we wanted to remind you about the Little Wonders Photo/Video policy.  The policy is in the 2018-2019 Handbook that was included in the registration email everyone received and is included below for your reference.   Be sure to send an email to the Publicity Chair, Steph O’Grady, if you do not wish to have photos/videos of you or your child used externally.  Please include a photo, full name, and the class you are in.

Policy

"From time to time, pictures or video of you and your child may be taken in class or at other Little Wonders' events. These images may be used internally for the benefit of the Little Wonders community, in such forms as a yearbook, placemat, newsletter/blog, or posted on the bulletin boards in the classroom. In addition, images of you or your child may be used to promote Little Wonders to potential new families or to the community at large, in such forms as flyers, promotional videos, on the Little Wonders website or the Little Wonders Facebook page. Last names will be omitted from materials intended for public use. If you have any objection to Little Wonders' use of any such images, you must notify the Publicity Chair at publicity@littlewonders.org, by the first day of class. All reasonable efforts will be used to accommodate your concerns. If you have any questions or concerns about this policy, please contact the Publicity Chair or Director (director@littlewonders.org.) Parents may not post photos of other children on facebook without consent of their parents. We appreciate this consideration and courtesy."
