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.

 

GIVING TREE THANKS

A heartfelt thank you to ALL those who participated in the LifeMOves Giving Tree Drive.  We were able to grant over 135 wishes which amounted to close to $4,000 of your generosity.  These families were delivered the items and were able to wrap their own gifts so everyone could open a little something on Christmas morning.  Their smiles and happy hearts, I’m sure are adequate thanks!! Special thanks to Ashley McDevitt and Jamie Hilton for coordinating and delivering.

 

SPRING SEMESTER CLASSES

January will be here before we know it, along with the Spring Semester and two new classes available to families.  For parents with little ones 9-14 months as of January 1, 2019, we will have a Thursday PM2 class held on Thursdays from 2:30-4:30. Our New Spring Baby Play for families with 3-9 month olds as of January 1, 2019, will be offered on Tuesdays 12:30-2 PM.  Both these classes will start the week of January 21st. Stay tuned for registration information.

PLEASE share this with others who have “little wonders.” Preview information is on website.
