You may be wondering…
“What is happening with our BWGTM project? We haven’t heard much about it for a while.”
You are correct, not a lot of information about the Union Church Early Childhood Initiative has been shared lately, but a LOT continues to happen! We assure you that active and diligent engagement has carried on. Some confidentiality has been required as work continues to secure a location for a quality, affordable, all-day preschool in the community of Summit. The relationships we have developed within the Summit community remain strong.
“Weren’t we working with First Congregational Church of Glen Ellyn to expand quality early childhood programming in that location?”
Yes! As part of our goal to bring quality early childhood education to a wider community, we partnered with FCCGE and set up preschool classrooms in their beautiful church. This past summer and fall, we welcomed families for an open house and personal tours to promote UCECP’s programming. Outreach and efforts were strong, but response and registration were not. Recently a decision was made to pause our plans for opening in this location to be able to concentrate efforts in Summit.
Stay tuned! We look forward to sharing future updates and fully engaging the congregation in this initiative.
