Dear Days of Wonder Families:
It is with a very heavy heart that we write this message to you. Last week, a survey went out asking families to commit to one of our three learning options for the upcoming year. After receiving those results our current enrollment numbers leave us with a monthly deficit of $25,000. Due to the financial strain caused by closing due to the COVID-19 pandemic as well as low enrollment numbers Days of Wonder will not be reopening.
Our school has been a source of light and love and wonderment for the past 8 years thanks to the vision and work of Cynthia Day, the staff, parents, and students. To think of it closing is heartbreaking and unfathomable. Please know we have done everything humanly possible to avoid this happening but with the current state of uncertainty, we just were not able to keep things going.
We want to be here to support you and your children in any way possible. Whether that is getting started with traditional homeschooling, getting connected to your local school district for online options, or getting connected to a local co-op, we are here for you! Please let us know how we can best support you as you navigate plans for your children.
With Much Love,
Amy Harrell & Amy Hardy
A Message from Cynthia Day, Founder of the Days of Wonder School
Dearest Parents and Students:
This is a sad day for all of us. I have no words to express the sorrow I am feeling right now.
But what I want everyone to remember is that even though the coronavirus may have closed our school, the DOW spirit is alive and well. At its core is the belief in all children and their uniqueness, talents, and abilities to learn. Our students will take that with them wherever they go. It will keep them strong and remind them that they have the strength to face many challenges to come.
So strong is my belief in the DOW spirit, I believe that one day, in some way, we'll see it in action again.
Cynthia Day, Founder
