Welcome to Early Childhood

As Early Childhood (EC) Liaisons we hope to make you feel welcome and we are responsible for clear communication between EC parents, the PSO and EC Administration.  In doing this, we work very closely with the Home Room Coordinators in each EC class.

We are looking forward to meeting you all and feel free to approach either of us whenever you have questions or concerns.
