About the Director

Site Supervisor: Erin Fox

Relationships are something I value most in life—they have an impact on everything we do. Building strong, trusting relationships with others and connecting deeply to nature are a focus for all here at ETCC; children, teachers and families alike. We respect children’s competence and help them navigate day-to-day situations through shared curiosity, reflection and reciprocal learning as we explore things together. Our day affords children ample freedom to explore their own interests and the world around them as well as the opportunity to spend lots of time outdoors, most of the day if they choose!  This freedom supports ETCC’s curriculum which emerges naturally from the children’s play and allows for deeper discovery while fostering a life-long love of learning.
