Mrs. Alice Jablonski • Child Development Director
When I was hired at ECCEC in 1989, I certainly didn’t think my position would develop into a 25+ year opportunity to minister to children, parents and the teaching staff. God continues to direct my steps and has also allowed my granddaughters to attend ECCEC.

Mrs. MaryAnn Lee • Head of School
My involvement of the past 42 years has given me the opportunity to use my special education degree as well as my ability to write curriculum, train teachers, and cast vision for ECCEC's future. I am also the Disaster Response Coordinator for Elmbrook Church leading teams in the U.S., I have led mission teams and teacher training experiences in Ireland, Belize, Guatemala and recently in Haiti and Dominican Republic. Leading the ECCEC Staff is a joy.
