About the Director

Director: Kim Nave

I am very passionate about cultivating community, inspiring educators and placing children at the heart of our educational process. Relationships are key in coming together as a community and embracing the whole family in our care.  I value providing aesthetically beautiful environments and inspiring opportunities for both children and teachers to engage, explore and learn in.   My professional journey includes many years of teaching, mentoring, directing and consulting in the field of Early Childhood Education and I am thrilled to be at ETCC and part of The PACCC Community.
