Happy Birthday, CEC!
On September 17, we celebrate the Center’s 38th anniversary. In 1979, the Center opened with 30 children and fewer than 10 employees. Today, 120 employees ensure that we provide exceptional care and education for 400 children daily at multiple sites, including a vibrant school age program. Along with its own children's programs, the Center has been able to advocate for excellence in all programs for young children by sharing our knowledge and pioneering approach within the early care and education community through our Consulting and Educational Services branch and Outdoor Classroom Project.
As we reflect on our 38 years and celebrate the impact the CEC has made in the field of early childhood education, we give thanks to the vibrant community of parents, staff, alumni, fellow educators, and family that have supported us over the years!
