A MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL
I am pleased to welcome you and your child to Champaign Early Childhood Center. You will discover that CECC is a place where your child will grow, learn and be loved. We are an inclusive, blended preschool program that has earned the state of Illinois Gold Circle of Quality rating, as well as the Award of Excellence for the Inclusion of Children with Special Needs. This upcoming school year will be an exciting time in your child’s life as they learn independence, social skills, as well as pre-readiness skills. In our preschool program, your child will have daily hands-on activities with centers that develop academic skills while enhancing social skills. Our curriculum will help prepare your child as they move on to Kindergarten. We are committed to bringing the highest quality of early childhood education and care for your child and your family. Research shows that the best possible thing you can do to prepare your child for school, is to enroll them in a high quality, standards based preschool program. The best part is that there is no cost to send your child to our program, as it is a state funded Preschool for All program. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your child’s growth and development. We are excited to see what the year of learning with our students brings!
