Parent/Guardian Association

As a parent or guardian of a child enrolled in the ECEC you are automatically a member of the ECEC Parent Association. The Parent Association is recognized as having a special interest in the Center's operation. All Center parents are encouraged to participate in the Parent Association. The Association is an advocate for Center parent interests, has representatives on the Early Childhood Education Center Advisory Board, and contributes services and funds to the Center on a voluntary basis. In addition, the Parent Association awards scholarship funds annually to ECEC families.


Please note: All checks for fundraisers should be made payable to ECEC Parent Association.

General Mills Box Tops for Education (Ongoing)

Target Take Charge of Education (Ongoing)

Do you shop at Target? If you do, there's an easy way to help raise money for the ECEC. If you have a Target Guest Card, Target will donate 1% of your Target store and purchases made on the Target Guest Card to the ECEC through their School Fundraising program.*

It's easy to participate. Just call the Target School Fundraising hotline at 1-800-316-6142 and give them your Target Guest Card account number and the ECEC's ID# 111135. Let your friends and family know. Anyone in the country who shops at Target can designate our school.

If you don't have a Target Guest Card but would like to participate, you can pick up an application at the check out lanes at any Target store, or apply online.

*The Target Guest Card is a credit card issued by Retailers National Bank, an affliliate of Target. Subject to credit approval. Some restrictions apply to 1% donation.


There are a variety of tasks that we could use help with. If you are interested in helping with the Parent Association, please call the ECEC office and tell them if you are interested in fundraising, parent nights or family events.
