Message from the Principal:

Welcome back everyone! 

I hope everyone had a wonderful winter break and was able to spend lots of time with family and friends.  I would like to thank Santa (Greg Moser) for visiting with all of our students.  It was a pleasure seeing all of their excited faces as they sat on Santa’s lap. Since the PTO received donated gifts from Toys for Tots after winter break began, gifts will be distributed for Children’s Day in April.  I would also like to thank all of our awesome ECC parents for continuing to work with your children at home and joining us for all our winter activities. Have a wonderful and Happy New Year!

Jennifer Keyes

ECC Principal


Donation Request:

We are in need of boy and girl’s clothing. We really need underwear in sizes 3T, 4T and 5T (new ones preferred) and elastic waist/sweat pants or shorts.  If your child has outgrown any of these items, or you have any extra at home, we would appreciate it if you would donate them to the ECC.  Thank you!



Happy New Year and Welcome Back! 

Motheread/Fatheread will continue to be offered, monthly, on the 4th Wednesday of every month.


Parent Coffee Meetings:

Please join us at our next Parent Coffee on January 16th at 8:15am & 12:15 pm in Room 15. 



 It is that time of year when we need to start thinking about registering for the 2019-2020 school year. All students will need to complete reregistration starting early February.

  1. If you have a student who will be 5 by October 1st, 2019, then they are of age to attend Kindergarten in Westminster Public Schools. At this point, you should be making contact with your child’s home school and making sure they know you will be bringing your student. 
  2. If your child will be returning to preschool, you will need to reregister online. Look for more information in Thursday folders in February.  Returning students that register for next school year will get preference over new students.
  3. If you (or someone you know) will be registering a new preschool student at the ECC next year, we will begin taking new registrations starting early February. Our program will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis and students will be notified of their placement in our program by late May or early June.

This month the preschool staff received professional development around strategies to use while giving students directions and expectations.
