WOLFEBORO — The Fifth Annual Team Trivia Tournament to benefit the Wolfeboro Area Children's Center will be held on Wednesdays from January 8 to February 19 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Wolfeboro Inn Ballroom.
A team consists of up to 10 people. The first six weeks are preliminary rounds that lead up to the Team Trivia Championship night on the final, seventh Wednesday. Teams of up to 10 people each will vie for trivia superiority each week, with a weekly grand prize valued at $100 (cash or prizes) to the team with the most points at the end of the night. The six weekly winners are invited back for the Team Trivia Championship where a tournament champ is awarded; but any team can participate in the trivia action. The tournament grand prize is ten tickets for the WinniBelle, provided by the chief sponsor The Wolfeboro Inn, and a to-be-announced additional prize.
Each night of the Team Trivia Tournament features four rounds of trivia questions that vary in point value and an extra credit game. The games are run by a live host/gamemaster who asks the questions, keeps things lively, and interacts with the players.
Beginning on January 14 the Center is providing a new childcare opportunity called "Toddler Town". This program offers quality childcare on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings on an as-needed, drop-in basis for children ages 1 to 3 years old. Parents may preregister and find out more about this opportunity by calling 569-1027 or by stopping by 180 S. Main Street, Wolfeboro. Check out the Children's Center at www.wolfeborochildren.org.
Wolfeboro Area Children's Center's mission is to enhance the well-being of families and the community by meeting the developmental and educational needs of children through comprehensive, affordable, high-quality child care and family services, and to cooperate with other agencies serving those needs.
The Wolfeboro Area Children's Center, founded in 1974, is daycare and so much more. The Children's Center offers early care and education to children ages 6 weeks through 5 years old. The school-age program, for ages 6 through 12, meets mornings and afternoons during the school year and all day throughout school vacations and the summer, providing children the opportunity to explore and develop their interests.
All members of the teaching staff meet Licensed Plus requirements for education and experience. The Children's Center is a licensed Preschool Special Education program with on-staff teachers and therapists. The Prevention and Family Services Programs, under the direction of a Master's level social worker, address the varied needs of our families in a family-friendly environment.
