Welcome To ECEC!

Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year at the Lincoln County R-III Early Childhood Education Center. For many of our students, this is their first school experience and for others it marks the return to ECEC. The first day of preschool is full of mixed emotions for both parents and students. Rest assured that our staff will form a partnership with you to ensure that your child has the best possible school experience every day.

Parents/guardians can expect clear and open communication from ECEC. You can look forward to school wide monthly newsletters, monthly classroom newsletters, parent/teacher conferences each semester, emails, family fun nights, daily communication folders, quarterly objective based report cards and updates on our Facebook page. I extend an invitation to you, as your child’s first and most important teacher, to be involved in your child’s preschool experience at ECEC. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions or need assistance.

The Nightly Reading Record Sheet is an amazing way to make sure reading is a priority in your house. When your child returns a monthly reading calendar completely filled in, they will receive a fun book and a prize to take home. PLEASE take the time to print this calendar for your child. There is no reading calendar for August. It will start in September. Monthly participation allows your child to learn and also spend quality time with you.

Children are made readers on the laps of their parents.”

From the Nurse...

If your child has an allergy, asthma, or suffers from seizures, please make sure to have a completed action plan on file. Feel free to contact me with any medical concerns in regards to your child. I look forward to a successful year with our students.
Nurse Tammy


  • Remember to contact the office at 462-3020 if your child will be absent.
  • September tuition is due on Sept 1st. All invoices are emailed to primary email.
  • If you have a question, please just ask.

PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports)

Each month a PBIS sheet will come home with your child to help your family support the positive behavior that your child is learning and practicing at school. Hopefully PBIS will encourage your child have positive behavior at home as well. Please read over each item on the monthly PBIS sheet and when your child has completed those tasks he or she can return it to school to add a cutout to our PBIS wall. A copy of the form can be found at this link.
