Giving Season

Thank you to our 2022 Colorado Gives Day donors! You showed up for our children and families in a spectacular way. We are looking forward to growing our commitment to providing comprehensive education and equitable opportunity for every child.

If you missed Colorado Gives Day, don't worry! Your year-end-giving still qualifies for the Colorado Child Care Contribution Tax Credit. There's a really great video on our website that explains how your generosity can also benefit you.

Did you know end-of-year donations account for 37% of charitable giving?

Staff Spotlight

The teachers and staff at Wild Plum work hard for our children and families every day. It is such a gratifying job, and we want to take the time to appreciate those who guide these little ones through our programs. Some of the staff have enjoyed this beautiful teachers lounge, set up by their site supervisor, as a way to enjoy the time they take away from the classrooms.

There are many ways to show appreciation to our early childhood educators. If someone has made an impact on you or your child's life, be sure to thank them!

Conscious Discipline Parent Night

Conscious Discipline Parent Nights are free and virtual parenting classes for our Wild Plum families and community members. Presented by the Wild Plum Center and our Mental Health Consultant, sponsored by Mile High United Way, these classes are offered on zoom in both English and Spanish on the second Tuesday of each month.

You can learn more about the Conscious Discipline curriculum here.

Our next Parent Night is on 1/10 at 6:00pm, where we will visit the topic of Power of Attention and the Power of Unity. We hope to see you there! Click the link below to join the virtual meeting.

Service Spotlight

'Tis the season of giving, and we are always blown away by the kindness of our community. Not only did you show up in a big way for us on Colorado Gives Day, but our children and families benefit from donations like these year round.

We have also received some fantastic book donations over the past few weeks, which will fill up children's bookshelves for all of our programs and classrooms. These books are in wonderful condition, and our staff love reminiscing on some childhood favorites just as much as the kids will enjoy them. It's great to know that our students will be able to directly benefit from your generosity!
