Early Childhood Resource Center

The Early Childhood Resource Center was established with original funding from the Department of Education, and then from MA Dept. of Early Education and Care. ECRC offers local early childhood educators and parents a lending library of materials to enhance early childhood learning across the region. In addition to borrowing materials, parents, caregivers & educators may come to the center located in the Cape Cod Children’s Place facility to utilize a variety of equipment including die cut machines and other tools.

Participation in the Lower Cape Early Childhood Council is requested in exchange for the use of the Resource Center. Check the “Council” tab for upcoming meetings.

The Resource Lending Library is now available to Council Members. Check it out !
