Even the American Academy of Pediatrics has jumped on the play bandwagon. In their 2018, clinical report entitled “The Power of Play,” they detail how “research demonstrates that developmentally appropriate play with parents and peers is a singular opportunity to promote the social-emotional, cognitive, language, and self-regulation skills that build executive function and a prosocial brain. Furthermore, play supports the formation of the safe, stable, and nurturing relationships with all caregivers that children need to thrive.”

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

WECC Parent

The Toddler Teachers have been such a great support for our daughter as we just started (at center). She provides us detailed updates at the end of the day and has shown her special attention during the day to help her get acclimated. Most importantly, the teachers makes us feel welcome and shows us that our daughter is cared about.

Being new to the area and transitioning was very hard for our family and the great lens that the Site Director has gone through to efficiently and effectively not only help our child feel welcomed, but also make the merge from homeschooling to ECC has been phenomenal....
