Mr. Webb (QPS Superintendent- or as one spunky 4 yr old said "you are the guy who is the boss of all the schools!") came to visit EVERY classroom on Monday! 
Let's just say Mr. Webb was talked into some songs, cookies and play-dough. Then throw in a few high-fives and blind slide hugs- as well as talking like a parrot and I would he had a typical day at the Quincy Early Childhood Center!



 

 

 

 

Happy Bear is coming back to Early Childhood on wednesday and Thursday (Feb 15th and 16th)

Happy Bear is part of the P.S. It’s My Body! program from Advocacy Network for Children, a child abuse prevention center that serves Adams, Brown, Cass, Hancock, McDonough, Morgan, Pike, Schuyler, and Scott Counties. A trained Advocacy Network staff member will present the program, which will discuss recognizing welcome and unwelcome touches, which parts of the body are private, using resistance skills (say “No,” move away), and identifying trusted adults to tell about inappropriate touches.  The play incorporates humor and audience participation to allow children to teach Happy Bear about personal safety.

 

 

 

 

 

If you are interested in having your child screened for our program or have any other questions, please call (217)228-7121 or stop by and see us at 401 South 8th Street. 

Please ensure that you give your bus 5-10 minutes before, and after the scheduled time. We do everything we can to ensure that the pick-up/drop-off time is correct, but the beginning year is difficult due to new routes, pictures, etc.

 

If you have any questions about busing, schedules, teachers, or anything, please call us at 228-7121!

 

 

If you are new to our program or visiting our website, please check out the ENROLLMENT and HEALTH REQUIREMENTS tab on the left to learn more about our program. You can also review some of our wonderful activities by clicking on the PARENT ENGAGEMENT tab.

 

 

 

We look forward to seeing you this year!

Director
