Upcoming Change in Office Staffing

EC3’s Program Director, Beverly Miller, will be leaving EC3 at the end of this month to take a job with the State of Michigan's unemployment agency. Although this is sad news for EC3, it's a great opportunity for Bev to try something new and different that allows her to work from home. Her last day at EC3 will be December 30th.

Rather than scramble over the next couple weeks to conduct a thorough search and a measured vetting process for a new Program Director, we will wait until the New Year; this will allow us some time to review our administrative needs and bring in the support of the teaching staff to develop a sound process. Lis Tobia will serve as EC3's sole director until we hire a new PD, which will likely be within the first three months of 2021.

Positive News About Transmission of COVID-19 in Child Care

An article coming out in the journal Pediatrics cites finding from a recent Yale University study that shows “Within the context of considerable infection mitigation efforts in US child care programs, exposure to child care during the early months of the US pandemic was not associated with elevated risk for COVID-19 transmission to providers.” Read the entire article by clicking here.

Join a Committee

If serving on the Board of Directors doesn’t interest you, but you have time and talents that would benefit EC3, consider participating on a committee! Committee service fulfills your volunteering obligations and allows you to participate in the operations of EC3 without the time and legal obligations of being on the Board. For more information, review the position description and application here.
