    I pulled my daughter from here after about a month. They where sending my 3 year old daughter home early and even suspended her for "acting childish" this is a poor excuse for a school and the main reason I put my daughter in a private school

    ECC #65 is a wonderful learning community with caring staff and faculty. Parent participation is great and communication is daily.
