Parent Workshops

Parent Workshops are free and open to friends and families of Wonders. RSVP required. 

Thursday, December 4, 7:00-8:30 pm

Power Tools and Power Struggles – Parent Encouragement Program (PEP)
This workshop is geared towards school age parents.

Frequent Power Struggles, whether between adults or between parents and child, seriously erode relationships. Learn what happens when a conflict develops and gain insight into redirecting that energy in ways that solve problems and brings people closer. This workshop is geared towards school age parents. 
RSVP to Meghan Park 

All Workshops are held at the Pink House, Wonders’ Administrative Office, located at 4607 Willard Ave, Chevy Chase, MD 20815.


Meet Tyler Stoltz – new Assistant Program Director at Chevy Chase

Tyler Stoltz

I graduated from Lock Haven University in 2012 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Sports Management. While in school I was on the Sports Administration Society Board. We organized university wide events and fundraisers. My first job out of school was working for the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, Pa. Here, I held the title of Structured Sport Supervisor, organizing and overseeing all club and intramural sports offered through the recreation department. In my most recent position, I work at the Boys and Girls Club of Lancaster, Pa as the Program Coordinator. A few of my daily responsibilities included programming tournaments and competitions for our kids ages 6-18, coordinating sports leagues, (basketball, football, and soccer), and tasking our part time staff in our art room, computer lab, and homework club. 

In my free time I enjoy coaching youth basketball, hiking, kayaking, playing sports, cycling, and spending time with my friends and family. I am looking forward to the opportunity with Wonders at Chevy Chase, and can’t wait to meet all the families there!

Activity Bus for Wood Acres Elementary 

We are now offering an activity bus for Wood Acres Elementary School students who are participating in after school activities. Children enrolled in Wonders at Little Falls will be picked up at Wood Acres on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays after their after school activities and brought to Wonders on the Wonders shuttle bus. Contact Senate Alexander for more details.

Meet Inette Hunter!

 

Inette Hunter

Hello, my name is Inette Hunter and I am thrilled about joining the Leland Children’s Center as Program Director!  I am originally from Akron, Ohio and throughout my college years I’ve lived in New York, Missouri and Philadelphia.  My family and I settled in Maryland in 2008.

I hold a Bachelor’s of Arts degree in Psychology from Miami University (Ohio) and I’ve completed early childhood education coursework at Rasmussen College and the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education.  I’ve had numerous experiences working in child care with children age 6 weeks through school age, as Assistant Teacher, Lead Teacher, Program Specialist and Assistant Director.

I’ve also worked with Teaching Strategies, LLC for 5+ years guiding programs on the implementation of The Creative Curriculum (the curriculum used by Wonders).  In my spare time, you will find me with my husband and two children, running/walking 5k charity events, baking, blogging and exploring ventures as a Healthy Hands Cooking instructor with children.

Wonders at Leland is a marvelous place and I’m very excited to get to know the children and their families.
