EC3 Staff


EC3 is staffed by early childhood professionals who are committed to creating a positive environment for young children.

Twenty-three full-time teachers staff the eleven EC3 classrooms. All of our lead teachers hold either a Bachelors, Associates, or CDA credential, and every staff member is certified in infant/pediatric CPR and first aid.

EC3 also boasts support staff who are trained in child development and are filled with love for children. The support staff are very familiar faces to every EC3 child, and smoothly transition into the classrooms when primary caregivers are away. 

Prior to employment all staff members (teachers and office staff) must submit to reference checks, pass a comprehensive criminal background check, and receive clearance from Michigan’s database of those who are even suspected of child abuse or neglect.

EC3 has been a great place these last four years. We have been very happy with each of the classrooms and all of the teachers. We will miss this place dearly! Thanks for being our partner in helping our child grow and learn so much!
