Buffy Clements

Preschool Teacher

Buffy has been with EC3 since 2021 after working for three years at our former sister school, Early LCC. Before ELCC, Buffy was a stay-at-home mom to her three children as well as other neighborhood children. She rejoined the working world as a long term GSRP preschool substitute with the Lansing Public Schools. Buffy also taught dance (tap, jazz, ballet, pointe, and tumbling) for many years to students from age 3 through adults. 

She graduated LCC twice now, once with her Certificate of Completion in Child Development in 2016 and again with her Associates Degree in Child Development and Early Education in 2018. She is slated to graduate in 2022 from Western Michigan University with her Bachelor’s Degree in Child and Family Services and Development.
Buffy has been married to her best friend, Todd, since July 2001. They have three children. Tristyn, Taylor, and Tabitha. You may recognize all three of them, as they are also part of the EC3 family! Buffy also has a small menagerie at home and loves to spend her downtime with her family. Together they love to travel, camp, boat, and have local adventures to fairs, festivals, concerts, and eateries.

“Working with infants and toddlers is my passion. I am excited to be at EC3 with the Lions classroom! Learning 3’s is a challenge I am looking forward to exploring and building my knowledge!”

I recommend EC3 wholeheartedly, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic. They have been the utmost professional and proactive in their response and communication. They adhere to the strictest safety and sanitation protocols and it shows. Since returning our child has thrived in Toddlerland and I am grateful for the tutelage his teachers provide him and us! The quality curriculum is evident and appreciated. The teachers are treated as valued educators and this makes a noticeable difference. I know each day our child is receiving excellent care which eases our minds as we work from home to provide for our family.
