Early Childhood Consultants

Early childhood education is provided in the LCMS Central Illinois District (CID) through our elementary schools as well as many free-standing early childhood programs.

Free standing early childhood programs are those formal programs not associated with a Lutheran elementary school. To assist these programs and their directors and teachers the CID offers the services of the Education Executive as well as three regional consultants.

Our regional consultants are experienced early childhood educators who are ready to share their expertise with directors and staff of any early childhood program.

We also maintain an email listserv through which workers can help and support each other.  Contact the Education Executive for information about a free membership.
