Supplementals

Graduation Program

In May, World of Wonder’s portable stage is set for a school get-together. All students, in every level, have the opportunity to sing some of their favorite songs and fingerplays for the special people in their lives. They perform in their graduation caps and receive diplomas.

World of Wonder Parent Group

The World of Wonder Parent Group’s goal is to enhance the established school programs. Meetings are held throughout the year to plan, organize and fund activities for both students and their parents.
Some activities include: Providing Student enrichment programs, purchasing Graduation gifts for each student and planning evening speakers for parents on relevant topics. It also engages in various charitable activities. Membership is optional and open to all. Parents are welcome to participate to the extent that their time and interest allows.

World of Wonder and its Parent Group co-sponsor a staff / parent workshop twice a year on various subjects relevant to pre-schoolers.

School Visitors

We do not go on any field trips. To supplement our curriculum, either special monthly community helpers or pre-school enrichment programs will be provided. Some of the past enrichment programs have been a puppeteer, folksinger, magician and an animal show. Once a year the Woburn Fire Department visits with the fire truck and the Woburn Police Department with their safety vehicles.

Yearly school and class pictures will be taken by a professional photographer, so your child’s pre-school years can be a lasting memory.

Monthly Newsletter

You can look forward to a monthly newsletter and calendar from the office to inform you of upcoming events, topics of discussion, days off from school, classroom visitors, programs and updates on curriculum activities. Individual classroom newsletters will update parents on specific curriculum activities.
