Celebrate Earth Month

Spring is here and our fellow feathered friends are making their way back home. During the month of April, we're making Wildflower a hospitable place where they can nestle in and raise their family. We're adjusting our focus to the beauty and color of life and creating a bird observation area just outside our classroom windows. 

 

Sledding, Cider & Cookies Party 
DATE: Saturday, Feb. 1 from 9AM-11AM
Wax your sleds and toboggans and get ready for the annual Sledding, Cider & Cookies Party! Multiple runs to choose from. We have runs to fit all skill levels, whether you like a slow leisurely ride or like a little air, we've got you covered. 
 
Tips for Staying Warm:
Avoid cotton. Cotton absorbs sweat and becomes very cold against the skin. Synthetic materials like polypropylene are preferred.

Layer up! Wear multiple thin layers so you can easily unzip or take off when you get hot, then put back on when you take a break.

Start dry. Try to keep snow out of your clothes. Bib snow pants will keep snow away from your waist and gators will keep snow from getting inside your boots.

Parents Night Out
DATE: Friday, Dec. 6 from 6PM-8PM
LOCATION: Wildflower Early Learning Center 

Need time for last-minute holiday shopping or just need a date night. Leave your kids with us and while they make handmade gifts, play games and watch movies you can enjoy a couple of hours of you time. 

Cost: $20 for first child, $15 for additional. Dinner is provided. Registration Required. Space is limited. 

Parent Education Night
DATE: Wednesday, November 20 from 6 PM-7:30 PM
LOCATION: Wildflower Early Learning Center 

Topic: Play and how it prepares your child for kindergarten and elementary school. 

This event is open to the public. Childcare is available upon request but is limited. There is a $10 suggested donation for childcare to cover pizza for the children. Proceeds will go towards the Wildflower Professional Development Fund. 

Congratulations to all the Little Monsters who participated in the Lil' Monster Dash!

Lil' Monster Dash

DATE: Saturday, Oct. 19 from 9AM-10AM

RACE START: 9:30AM

This is a free community event. Registration is not necessary but encouraged. 

Suit up your Lil' Monsters and spend an hour outdoors at the Lil' Monster Dash, a 1/3 mile fun run for kids 10 & under. The trail will take racers over the hills, through the woods, and right past Grandma's garden. Each little goblin will get a prize and a bone-strengthening post-race snack.

 

For those little ghouls not prepared to run, they can participate in a scavenger hunt while dancing to music.

 

This is a Halloween themed fun run. Costumes are encouraged but not necessary. Parents are welcome to run with their kids.

This event is in conjunction with Surf the Murph and the Savage 100 race at Murphy Hanrehan Park happening just across the street. Once your Lil' Monster is done running, go cheer on the 25, 50, and 100 milers!​
