EC Parents' Night



Here is some information on drop off and pick up. We will be utilizing a car line drop off/pick up procedure so that, if you so choose, you don’t even need to leave your car!

Drop Off

  • Parents will be walking their children into the building and signing them in at the table near the entrance. From there, you will walk your child to the correct classroom. 

  • During the evening if you have anything to relay to the staff, please call the front desk of your center. This could be a change in pick up personnel, a message to your child(ren), or just to show some love to our front desk staff. 


Pick Up

  • At pick up, you will walk into the building through the same main entrance and a staff member will bring your child to you. For safety purposes, please have your photo ID ready!
