Dear Center Families,
As we enjoy the weather change and fall into autumn, October presents us with several opportunities to learn more about different issues or causes. Many of you probably know that October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but did you also know that October is:

National SIDS Awareness Month
National Learning and Development Month
National Substance Abuse Prevention Month
National Down Syndrome Awareness Month
and National Bullying Prevention Month?

When I worked at Alton Central School, I was the advisor to the Youth to Youth program which focused a ton of time in October on preventing and addressing bullying behaviors. According to, more than 3.2 million children across the country are bullied each year. Both school age and early childhood educators need to be trained on understanding what bullying is and how it might look, as well as know ways to prevent bullying.

What better way to get ready for a winter of snowy fun than to load up on new skiing and skating gear, while helping out a great cause. The Annual Ski and Skate Sale at Kingswood Regional High School in Wolfeboro, N.H., gathers vendors from all around the state, plus consignments, to provide skis, skates, snowboards, and winter outdoor clothing at great prices. And the proceeds benefit the Children’s Center and the Abenaki Ski Team. The big sale is Saturday, November 10 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Dear Families,

As we kick off the new school year, we do have some teacher team changes and room name updates in our toddler, preschool and school age programs that I thought I would make sure to share here as an intro to our September Newsletter.

Dear Parents,
I know it’s just the beginning of August, but if you are like me, you are starting to think about your child’s transition “back to school,” which could mean stepping up to a new classroom or stepping in to a brand-new school.

The Children's Center is pleased to announce that Isabella Young, Jungle Cubs classroom assistant, is promoted to the position of Cuddlebugs Associate Teacher effective August 27, 2018.
