WCCC is planning an old fashioned picnic on the preschool deck and playground on Wednesday, September 21 from 5:45-7:00pm for currently enrolled families.  WCCC families bring their own picnic supper or sign up in your child’s classroom for pizza, drinks, cookies and veggies ($10 for 2 pizza eaters/$15 for 3+ pizza eaters-cash or check). We will have some tables and chairs set up, but feel free to bring a blanket to sit on.


Stop by the Early Childhood Program between 3:00-6:00pm to celebrate the achievements of our former Executive Director Mary Kloppenberg, who retired after more than twenty-seven years at WCCC!  Children, staff and families (current and former!) will gather on the Preschool Playground and in the Red Room to chat with Mary and connect with members of the WCCC community. We also welcome friends and colleagues from Wellesley College and the Wellesley Public Schools who worked with Mary.  Light refreshments will be served.

Please RSVP before Tuesday, May 17 by calling 781-235-7667 or by replying to the emailed invitation.
