Fundraising & Support

Fundraising is an important part of the Lake Washington Toddler Group program. We ask that each family raise $45 in fundraising (through the Charleston Wrap fundraiser, Spring Carnival raffle tickets, or direct donations). Your fundraising efforts and donations provide fee waivers, classroom supplies and parent education lectures. Every donation helps!

If you or your child is ill, please stay home and take care of yourself.  Be sure and contact your teacher to let them know you will miss class. Please be alert to the following symptoms signifying illness in your child and be aware that if your child displays any of these symptoms you may be asked to leave class:
