Wonders is asking parents to consider sharing their thoughts with the County Council. As parents, you understand the importance of quality programming and must be assured that the programs placed in our public schools meet high quality standards, ensure children’s physical and emotional safety, incorporate best business practices and are accessible to as many families as possible. Parents should be active and informed participants in the procurement process. You know the value of quality before and after care. Your stories, experiences and opinions matter to Council members, whose contact information is listed below. Let your voices be heard today. Wonders has an exceptional parent community, who cares about our mission of creating and advancing diverse educational communities that teach the foundations of life-long learning and social responsibility. Please help us ensure that all of the County’s children will benefit from quality after school programming from child care providers who are selected according to consistent, transparent and legal County regulations.
