Parents looking for the right preschool for their children this fall are invited to attend the JJC Early Childhood Center open house on Wednesday, Aug. 17 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the Main Campus in A-Building, 1215 Houbolt Road in Joliet.

Parents will have an opportunity to meet the teaching staff and get additional information about the ECC’s research-based curriculum, full-day and part-day preschool programs and learn about parent involvement opportunities.

ECC staff will be available to answer questions and offer information on enrollment, child care assistance programs, curriculum, child development screenings, scholarships for child care tuition and community agencies that offer family support and services.

“The ECC is a wonderful environment for preschool-aged children to learn and grow,” said Director of Business and Auxiliary Services Janice Reedus. “Our staff of highly-trained professionals provide guidance and encourage the social, emotional, physical and cognitive growth of the individual child.”

The ECC has been accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), the highest level of certification possible for a childcare school or facility, since 2013.

The ECC is located at the west end of A-Building, near B-Building and the cafeteria. Click here for a map of Main Campus.
