Message from the Principal:

Welcome back everyone! 

I hope everyone had a wonderful winter break and enjoyed some special 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. 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



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 15th at 8:15am & 12:15 pm in Room 9. Come learn about all the exciting events happening at the Anythink Library.



 It is that time of year when we need to start thinking about registering for the 2020-2021 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, 2020, 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.


ECC Field Trip

Our second field trip will be in February to the Children’s Museum.  The AM session will go on Tuesday, February 4th and the PM session will go on Wednesday, February 5th. Please arrive at school at 8:30am and pick up your child from the school at 12:00pm.  Please have your child wear their ECC blue T-shirt the day of the field trip and pack a sack lunch.
