Dear CELC Families,
The Clinton Early Learning Center will be celebrating the 40th anniversary of its founding with two special events. The first will take place on Saturday, March 23rd from 6:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. with an adult only gathering and fundraiser at Hamilton College’s Little Pub. The second event will be on Wednesday April 17th here at the center with all the children and families during the NAEYC Week of the Young Child, with our Annual Art Show, Open House and Center Birthday Party!
Early childhood education has evolved rapidly over a short period of time and we are all proud that, in so many ways, CELC has led the way with an innovative program. Our teachers are highly skilled caregivers who are dedicated to creating the best learning and playing environment for your child. More importantly, to each of our teachers, your child is a completely unique and lovely individual, whom they have been honored to come to know.
As part of the celebration on Saturday March 23rd, we will be having a Basket Raffle to raise money for the CELC Scholarship Fund. We will be soliciting donations for baskets. Any families that may have a connection to a local business or anyone who would like to donate a basket it would be very much appreciated.
We will be celebrating the history of the Center with presentations that include still photos recalling scenes from our early years and snippets of a video history, in which those who have been significant in the life of the Center talk about key moments. Let the celebration begin now by spreading the word! We will also be setting up a networking site on the Hamilton College web page to facilitate these reconnections….
Please join us in celebrating Clinton Early Learning Center’s 40th anniversary!
