About Our School
Dear ECC-Central Families:
Welcome to the 2020-21 School Year at the Early Childhood Center Central at Samuel L. Berliner!
ECC-Central provides each child with a high quality early childhood experience, an academic foundation, and most importantly, a love for learning! Our daily instructional experiences address multiple learning objectives for young children. They include but are not limited to growth in: social-emotional development, physical development, cognitive development, language, literacy, mathematics, science/technology, social studies, and the arts. In addition to our classroom learning communities that encourage independence, children participate in art and music enrichment classes. Our talented staff members view a child’s ability to express themselves, solve problems and gain information as an essential part to their development.
It is the partnership and on-going communication between our parents, families and staff that help to build a successful school experience for all of our youngest learners.
On behalf of the ECC-Central Family, we look forward to working together as a team and having a successful school year!
If you ever have any questions, comments or concerns, please feel free to come by and see me.
Brenda R. Lee
