The ONLY “Wonder-Based” Education Plan
Specially Created For Children Ages 2-6

As an early childhood educator, you are often charged with teaching “the basics” so the children you teach are “ready” for big kid school.⁣ Yet, research shows (and your experience bears this out, right?) that worksheets and rote learning are not what will truly prepare our children for academic learning.⁣ They are like empty calories. Junk food.

The Wonder Box provides the children you teach with the most amazing brain food on the planet. Top nutrition tailored for young minds. Early education fueled by WONDER, and ONLY available here.

What’s Inside Each Box of Wonder?

Each month is a surprise! You’ll open your VIRTUAL Wonder Box to find it spilling over with play invitations and ideas to spark your teaching practice. Enjoy unboxing your exclusive package on the 15th of each month, and discovering a wealth of wonder-based learning that you can deliver the following month.

The best


About Sally Haughey, Founder of The Wonder Box...

I’m Sally Haughey, CEO and Founder of Fairy Dust Teaching, an online education platform that helps you do what you do best: be the best teacher you can be that makes a difference in your students’ lives. Fairy Dust Teaching is built on a passion for the wonder and magic of early childhood. We reach tens of thousands of early childhood educators every day who believe young children have the right to play, to be collaborators in learning, and to dream.

I’ll never forget the first moment I stood in front of my first classroom 24 years ago. All 18 young eyes were fixed on me, and it was the most sacred moment. I realized these children trusted me -- and I vowed never to take that trust lightly. I’m sure you feel the same about the children you teach, which is why everything I create to help other educators is imbued with intention and authenticity. Your trust is as important to me as YOUR commitment to provide an outstanding education for the young minds in your care.

With the Wonder Box, we aim to bring you the tools to meet today’s unique challenges with virtual and in-person learning, with the underlying belief that the true curriculum is the child. We provide a vast, richly varied array of ideas and practices inspired from all over: Waldorf, Reggio, Montessori, unschooling, you name it. (I sometimes say I’m a “pirate” because I’ve stolen ALL the best educational resources and brought them together into one!)

At the end of the day, we believe that peace on the planet begins and ends with how we educate our children. Now, more than ever, our children’s education will play a role in how we shape the world to come. I hope you’ll join us!

Why Choose The Wonder Box?

The Wonder Box is an exciting virtual box of unique wonder-based educational activities that you’ll look forward to “unpacking” each month. But it’s MUCH more than a collection of ideas. It’s a way of approaching early education that takes on the idea of transforming early childhood. Dedicated to wonder-based early educators -- the Wonder Box gives YOU the tools to ignite a child’s passion for learning. To unleash critical thinking through wonder and curiosity.⁣⁣ To build amazing neuro-pathways inside the architecture of a child’s brain through following the child’s interest.

Now, more than ever, we educators are called to build trust with the children we teach, by seeing, hearing, and valuing each child as a full citizen, a partner in their own education.⁣

It all begins with the Wonder Box -- packed with ideas and tools to strengthen the educational bond between you and the children you teach, so you can give them the best you have to give. NO MATTER WHAT.
