We believe that young children grow, learn, and thrive best through loving, nurturing relationships in an active, engaging, play-based educational environment.
Based on Psalm 127:3, ECCN believes that all children are gifts from God and that God has a plan and purpose for each one. (Jeremiah 29:11). We believe that young children grow, learn, and thrive best through loving, nurturing relationships in an active, engaging, play-based educational environment. In addition, young children deserve the right to experience God and His world by spending time outdoors.
Monica comes to ECCN with a broad range of experience from technology to classroom instruction to business administration. Upon leaving the corporate technology world, the Lord led her into the realm of early childhood education and she hasn’t looked back. She has served as a classroom teacher and then as an administrator in a large church weekday program. She has held leadership roles on various nonprofit boards in her community and in her home church of First Baptist Church, McKinney. She is passionate about age-appropriate instruction in early childhood programs as well as the encouragement and support of those leading and serving in our programs each day. She received her BBA in Management Information Systems from Texas Tech University in Lubbock, TX and currently resides in McKinney with her husband and three adult sons.
