We are very excited to announce that starting today, our company is now named Wonderschool.
When we started One Preschool, our mission was to increase access to quality early childhood care and education for all children. As we have continued to work towards that mission, we realized that our company name did not always reflect our mission and the ways in which we are working to achieve our goals.
Over the past year, the number of in-home programs we have helped start has grown and we are thrilled to be supporting amazing educators who are caring for and teaching children of all ages. Some of you are focused on infants, some on toddlers, others on preschool-aged children, and many with mixed-aged programs. We care fundamentally about helping to empower educators to serve all children aged 0 to 5.
We realized that our company’s name could sometimes be misleading or that some parents thought the programs we help start are only focused on children aged 3 to 5. We want to ensure that our brand is clear and resonates with all of the Directors and parents that are part of our wonderful community.
Late last year we embarked on a re-branding process. We spoke to friends, mentors, current Directors and parents, our own parents, our kids, and many more people to gather ideas and feedback about what our company and brand means to them. Thank you to those of you who provided ideas and feedback!
We chose Wonderschool as our new name because what we are building is one big community and network so we used a singular “Wonderschool,” but we leave more room in our brand to ensure that each of the individual programs we partner with are able to highlight their unique qualities, philosophies, and offerings. We are very excited to continue our work with our new company name.
In terms of what this means for each of our programs, we will be announcing our new name to the community and then updating our website and each school website with the new logo.
Thank you for your support of our company and mission as we continue to work towards achieving our goals to increase access to quality early childhood education. We are grateful to have each of you as a member of the Wonderschool network!
