I have been in the early childhood education field for over 30 years. I have worked in three states during this time. It wasn't until I moved to Stark County 7 years ago that I learned about the Early Childhood Resource Center.No place I have lived has had this type of resource available to those who work in the early childhood field. What a blessing this organization is to this area! Not only have I furthered my education through this organization, so has my staff. The children at our center have benfited through learning activities that were created in the production lab. The staff is very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful.

There is always a friendly voice on the other end of the phone and willing to help with any issues I come across. Every year this facility gets better and better. Every community should be as lucky as ours and have this resource.

The Early Childhood Resource Center provides extensive outreach to our community touching the lives of both children and adults. As a YMCA Child Care Director, I saw the the Early Childhood Resource Center provided support for staff training. On several ocassions, staff members came to our center to teach and offer support. Providing low cost memberships to the Production Lab, made it easier for the Teachers to make manipulatives, bulletin boards, or prepare activities for classroom projects.

As the Director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Stark County, I still see the continuation of community support. The BBBS Staff utilize the Production Lab to prepare bulletin boards to post in the YMCA branches, make pieces for projects and activities to do with the children and laminate important items for safe keeping. In the fall, the Resource Center provided a wonderful speaker for a training we held for our Adult Mentors. The quality of the training was top notch and the low cost made it possibile for us to provide. The Resource Center has a wonderful library for the staff to find books to share with the children and also books and CDs that can be incorporated into trainings.

We are very thankful to have the services of the Early Childhood Resource Center available to so many non-profit agencies, schools, and churches.

The Great!

I have had the wonderful opportunity to see the benefits of the training personally and with staff members. Throughout the training process, I saw the Teachers grow in their knowledge, independence, and confidence.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

expand the training resources available to the community and expand the Production Lab hours. With the number of people using the Production Lab, a larger facility with expanded space for the Production Lab would be helpful.

The Early Childhood Resource Center is a wonderful resource for our community. I have a masters degree in teaching and have been in the field oer 20 years. I have lived in several states and cities. This is the first resource center of this type I have ever encountered. In the past as an early childhood teacher I was able to utilize the center to make activities, books and all sorts of manipulatives for my classroom for free!

Currently I am an Even Start teacher and utilize the center to bring young parents in and allow them to make educational manipulatives to use with their children in their own homes. Also my students are able to use the resource center on their own. This provides an excellent opportunity for the families to provide learning opportunities at home to their children. My young mothers are excited to use the ECRC. I cannot say enough good things about it.

I would also like to say the staff there is very helpful. They give ideas, helpful tips, demonstrate how to use the equipment and are always on hand to answer questions. They are as big a blessing to us as the resource center itself!

The Great!
