2022 Pre-K Graduation!

🎈 Oh, the places our preschoolers will go! 🎈

Our 2022 pre-k classrooms had the opportunity to celebrate their graduation this week! 🎓 We are so proud of all of their hard work and we will never forget all of the art they created, the songs they sang, and the dance moves they busted out every day.

Thank you to all of our teachers who made this graduation possible!! ❤️ Our kiddos would not be who they are without your kindness, love, and support.

At Early Connections, Pre-K COUNTS!!! 🤩

25 Years of Mr. Tom!!!

Mr. Tom celebrated 25 years with Early Connections this week!

We could not be more blessed as an organization to have Mr. Tom on our team. He is our bus driver, our handyman, and our rock! Thank you Mr. Tom for all you do and all you have done for the children and the staff at Early Connections.

We can’t wait for 25 even more amazing years with you!!!

Farm to School Grant

Thanks to our Farm to School grant, our kiddos had the chance to sample some locally made cheese! We think they liked it 😆🧀

Special thanks to Edinboro Market for all of their help providing the local goodies!! Thank you Marti and Curtis!

Thank you to Kathy Iorio and Mike Visnosky! – Kusa’s Big Surprise

Today our children received an early Valentine gift, courtesy of Kathy Iorio through our Board Director, Mike Visnosky. Kusa’s Big Surprise is a thoughtful book which promotes the development of self confidence and teaches the lesson that even simple acts of kindness can mean a lot. Kusa’s message is one of love, self-respect, and selflessness. The 15 copies will be distributed throughout the EC community. Kathy has been active in improving children’s lives in Erie for many years. Her focus was on children’s health and fitness through wellness programs designed for elementary school age students. Kusa is her first attempt at writing and she didn’t miss the target of helping children learning to be self-confident individuals. We understand that Kusa is available on Amazon and that a sequel will be available soon. Thanks to Kathy and Mike for thinking of Early Connections!
