Dear WCCC Families,

During this season of giving, we ask you to consider making a gift to WCCC. Resources for teacher education and retention are always the top funding priority, but we thought it would be fun to ask some children from the Early Childhood and After-School programs for their ideas. Here they are…

Thank you for your generosity and all you do to make our community strong.

With gratitude and holiday wishes,


Monday May 8th: Fire Truck Visit Wellesley firefighters will bring a Wellesley fire truck to WCCC.

Finally, your children have made handprint badges for you to wear to work or to display in your office. While we think every week is a “week of the young child,” this particular week recognizes the special work parents and teachers do for the good of young children. We are committed to providing the best care for your children, but as you know, not all children receive this kind of care. Across the country, The Week of the Young Child, is celebrated to bring attention to the needs of children and the importance of quality child care. Wearing your badges helps people understand.
