The Eleanor Whitmore Early Childhood Center, once known as the East Hampton Daycare and Learning Center, wants to hear from its alumni and their parents for a special project: a now-and-then style "book of stories."
"Like any organization, we want to understand how effective our program is and what kind of an impact it had on kids and their families. . . . The ultimate goal is to create a community of parents and kids who have the center as a common bond," Joan Overlock, the center's director of development, said by email last week.
Former students and their parents have been invited to share their memories of the center, what their educational journeys looked like after they left the facility — particularly how prepared they felt for school — and where they are today.
Ms. Overlock said the Whitmore Center wants to create an Alumni Day to celebrate them, as well as enhance its newsletter by adding "alumni voices and updates."
Those interested in taking part can call the Whitmore Center at 631-324-5560 or send an email to [email protected] to the attention of Ms. Overlock.
