Other CEC Events for enrolled families

In addition to our Annual Benefit + Online Auction, the CEC also holds other events during the year that help build community, foster close ties and friendships among our families, children, and staff, and are also a lot of fun!

Annual Pancake Breakfast + Annual Fund Kick-off
This event is held at the beginning of the program year in our beautiful Preschool yard and formally kicks off a new program year of learning, growth, and friendship for our Infant, Toddler, Preschool, and School-Age families! Pancakes and other delicious foods are graciously prepared by our amazing parent volunteers. This event also launches our Annual Fund campaign and is a great way to meet new friends and get reacquainted with old ones. Parent volunteer positions for participation hours are available at this event.

Grandparents' and Special Friends' Day
Grandparents and Special Friends of currently enrolled Infant, Toddler, and Preschool children are invited to a special morning here at the CEC. Guests enjoy a light breakfast and brief presentation from our Directors, followed by fun and adventures with the children in their rooms and yards. This is a great opportunity to share the unique CEC philosophy and environment with extended family and friends. This event is usually held in late winter or early spring.

Preschool Campout
Each June, the Preschool yard is abuzz with excitement as tents are pitched, the BBQ starts up, and the Preschool Campout begins!
