We believe that a good early childhood setting provides opportunities to learn the social skills necessary for classroom success and lays the foundation for problem solving and critical thinking.  We provide opportunities to learn respect, responsibility, cooperation, communication and independence.

Each class has responsibility to help in the lunchroom during the year.  Volunteers need to check in with the office and report to the lunchroom by 11:20am, and you should be done by 1pm.  This counts towards your volunteer hours and is a great chance to interact with students.  There will be someone there from Parents Club to help show you what to do,  Please do not bring any children with you to lunch duty.  ECE is responsible for staffing the lunchroom with volunteers the following weeks:
