From the Exec Director

From the desk of the Executive Director:

I am so pleased to be here at Diamond Street ECC. This school is an amazing environment that I have the privilege to be a part of. Not only are our staff highly qualified, they are committed and passionate about teaching young children. The average tenure of our staff currently is over 6 years here at Diamond Street. In the field of early childhood education where the turnover and burn out ate is very high, we are unique with staff who come in everyday ready to teach year after year. Our teachers are passionate about their work and their students and families. Here at Diamond Street, each child is special, unique and supported to be successful at school and in life. The first five years of a person's life is the most crucial, 90% of the brain is developed in these years. Our goal is to make the most of those crucial years for each child giving them meaningful learning experiences through developmentally appropriate activities, games and play. PLAY is a young child's work and we treat it with the importance that it deserves. I am honored to be a part of the important work of Diamond Street Early Childhood Center.
