Young Grads Celebrate

Caps, gowns, tassels…yes, it was a graduation ceremony, but the grads are only five years old. Early Childhood Alliance celebrated preschool graduation with more than 40 preschoolers on July 31 (Downtown Learning Center) and August 1 (Beacon Learning Center). Some of the grads have attended ECA Centers since they were six weeks old and are now getting ready to leave the familiar hallways of ECA to make the move to kindergarten.

Walking into the gymnasium to traditional graduation music, the little ones shared smiles and waves to the audience. Families and friends snapped pictures of their special grads during a ceremony of songs and recognition. Also recognized were the teachers and Center managers for their hard work in preparing the children for success in school.

Both ECA Centers are now enrolling. Contact Leesha Culp at, or 260-758-0080.
