Early Childhood Education Club


What is the Early Childhood Education Club all about? The ECEC exists to facilitate the professional development of its members through participation in a variety of early childhood activities at the local, state and national levels.

What does the club do? The club hosts a number of worthwhile activities, including a popular First Friday Film Festival (a documentary film screening followed by a related discussion on the first Friday of most months, September - May).  The club also hosts several professional development workshops each year, including two music/movement workshops and a professionalism workshop.  Active members attend conferences where they learn about the early childhood field and network with professional educators and other early childhood students.  Additionally, the club participates in service projects and fundraisers.


What are the benefits of membership? Members of the club enjoy opportunities to develop leadership and communication skills, to practice advocacy, to network with other early childhood educators and to learn in enriching, supportive environments.  In the past, active members have received funding to attend local, state and/or national conferences.


When and where does the club hold its meetings? The club usually meets on the first Saturday of the month (September – May) from 12:00 – 1:00, in the Student Life Lounge in Building 1 on CPCC’s Harris Campus (3210 CPCC Harris Campus Drive).

Can anyone join? How much does it cost to join? Whom do I contact for more information? Any currently enrolled CPCC student can become a member.
