The Board of Directors

In an effort to maintain the highest quality program possible, a Board of Directors is appointed by the church. The Board of Directors controls all matters of policy and budget. The purpose of the board is to work cooperatively for the benefit of both the church and the center to ensure that each child receives the very best care and education while attending the CEC.
