A group of young children at Early Childhood Alliance (ECA) needs your help.

Our Adopt-a-Classroom program invites individuals and organizations to help with classroom environment, materials, and learning experiences, plus some field trips for preschoolers and school agers. You choose the classroom based on a profile of needs that is provided by classroom teachers.


The program was initiated in 2016 as a way for the community to engage with the Agency on a more personal level. Adopters are welcome to choose various levels of support, from visiting the classroom to interacting with the children, sometimes getting to know your class even better through multiple visits.


You can make a significant impact on a child’s opportunity for success. Your help – in any of the options you choose – is sincerely appreciated.

Why is Adopt-a-Classroom important?

As a nonprofit, ECA relies on community donations to help provide children with the best early education possible.


  • The physical environment is a vital component of an early education program, providing opportunities for children to explore and learn through play.
  • High quality care and education for ALL children provide a strong foundation that helps prepare children for success in school and beyond.
