WHAT: Members of the community are invited to join Judith Morris, President & CEO, Lambton College along with other representatives from the College for a farewell ceremony honouring the Early Childhood Education (ECE) Centre. On Tuesday, June 24, Lambton College will open the doors to their long running ECE Centre to celebrate over 40 years of providing quality early learning and child care to the Sarnia-Lambton community. Throughout the years, the Centre also provided professional training and education to hundreds of students enrolled in Lambton College’s Early Childhood Education program.

“We want to take this opportunity to celebrate the services our Early Childhood Education Centre has provided to the families of Sarnia-Lambton for the past four decades,” said Judith Morris, President & CEO, Lambton College. “In addition to offering quality child care to hundreds of local children, our Centre has also helped launch the careers of a number of caring and talented early childhood educators. We are so proud of everything we have achieved through the ECE Centre, and we want to take a moment to recognize the many accomplishments of our staff over the years.”

The event is open to the entire community, especially children, families, faculty, staff and ECE students who have been involved with the Centre throughout the years. Attendees are being asked to share any mementos that they might have from their time spent at the Centre. Organizers hope this event will give people a chance to celebrate the impact the Centre has had on the community and share memories before saying their final farewell. Lambton College made the difficult decision to cease operating the ECE Centre in November 2013. The Centre will officially close on July 18, 2014.
