Eastern Early Education Senior Coordinator Message

April 2021

Do you wonder what next year will look like? Are you trying to make plans for summer camp? Do you question how many students you can accept in each classroom? Are you considering a virtual option? Are there legislative decisions that are going to impact your program? So many questions! But, you are not alone!!

I hope you will join us for EE Leader Connect on April 20th as we talk together about the things that are challenging us as we lead Christian early education programs in these days. EE Leader Connect zoom meetings are a place for Early Education Leaders to connect, be encouraged, share and get ideas, and pray together. The next EE Leader Connect is on April 20th at 9:15 AM or 12:30 PM EDT. The meeting link can be found in the EE Leader Connect Community along with resources, Power Points, and recordings from previous meetings. 

I am so thankful for the many ways the Lord has allowed us to continue to connect and encourage one another virtually. Many of you were able to participate in the ACSI EE Directors’ Day and the Virtual ACSI Designed to Flourish EE Conferences. What a blessing to join early educators from all over the world to grow professionally and be encouraged in the work the Lord has called us to. We were also able to meet in our monthly EE Leader Connect to continue the conversation about our staff’s well-being and work together to begin to design an intentional plan for supporting our faculty’s well-being. Looking ahead to May, we will be focusing on early education accreditation. Mark your calendar for May 18th now, and don’t miss it!

It is my privilege to pray for you and serve you to support the work the Lord is doing through you. May God continue to bless you and fill you to overflowing as you serve Him! Please let me know if I can assist in any way.
