Warren Early Childhood Center

August 16, 2019

Dear ECC Families,

We've had a great week at the Warren Early Childhood Center! Arrival and dismissal are moving more smoothly, children are becoming more comfortable in their classrooms and we've started learning about CORE. This week we focused on C for Civility. When we teach the concept of civility to preschoolers, we talk about being kind to others. We've read books about being kind to others and practiced showing kindness in the classroom. You can practice civility at home, too. Praise your child when they demonstrate kindness to a family member and thank them for showing civility. Next week we'll begin learning about O for Order (following the rules).

As always, we welcome your feedback regarding how we may better serve you.

Car Line Reminders

The car line is moving quicker each day. The car line will close at 9:05 a.m. daily. If you arrive after 9:05, you will need to park in the front lot and sign your child in.

In order to keep our children safe, please keep this in mind;

"While cars are moving, children shouldn't be and while children are moving, cars shouldn't be."

It is also important for engines to be turned off while in the loading zone until you are directed by ECC staff that children are clear and cars may safely be dismissed.

Dismissal Notes

  • ECC has two different dismissals each afternoon; full day at 3:30 p.m. & half day at 3:55 p.m. If you arrive early for half day dismissal, please wait in the center lane at the bottom of the hill until full day dismissal has concluded.
  • Please remember that individuals picking children up must be on the pick up list in the office and have a picture ID.

Mark Your Calendar!
