Let the Children Come
Many Homecoming visitors attended the dedication of the new state-of-the-art Early Childhood Learning Center Sunday, October 27. With 51 infants, toddlers, and preschoolers enrolled and 18 student teaching slots filled, the ECLC is an important part of MLC’s early childhood education program. “With the growing program at MLC, more students needed places to student teach,” said Professor Jennifer Mehlberg, the ECLC director. “The new center allows for that. There are also opportunities for students to come and observe the children to apply what they’re learning in their courses.” Students enrolled in our early childhood program are excited to teach in this beautiful new facility.
