Early Childhood Chatter Dear CECA Parents,

Happy New year! I am so excited about what we have in store for the second half of our CECA year.

Is your little one ready for preschool, or are you looking for a new one? We will have our annual preschool fair this month, so make sure and stopby! We plan to go swimming (indoors of course) in Grapevine, and as always, look for evite for Parents Night Out. Our Parent Programs will pick back up in February, and we hope that you can join us.

Best Wishes

Stephanie Branum President
