What We Do
The A.C.E.S. Mentorship Program is designed to empower the kids that attend programs at the EEUCC to be ACCOUNTABLE for their actions, CONNECT with their community, take responsibility for their EDUCATION, and to SHARE with one another. We also use STARS (Safe, Trustworthy, Acceptance, Respect and Share) to encourage the kids that attend programs at EEUCC to make sound decisions and show respect for not just their peers but also themselves.
Our Caring Corner is a safe place for grieving children, adolescents and their families who come together and talk about their memories in an atmosphere of acceptance. It is designed to provide a non-threatening environment of peer support; we offer neither therapy nor counseling. It is free of charge to qualifying families. We are also going to be using the Rainbow Curriculum which is an evidence-based; aged-adjusted curriculum that was developed by the Rainbows organization which is the largest international nonprofit group dedicated to helping children and teens grieve and grow after the death of a loved one.
This program caters to Infants, Young Toddlers (15 months-3 years old) and Preschool through Kindergarten aged children.

Our daycare staff encourage the healthy intellectual and psychological growth of the children in our center. We also offer WEEKEND AND NIGHT CARE!!
