Principal's Welcome

I am pleased to greet you from the Clearview Early Childhood Center Website!

We currently serve pre-kindergarten students who are two to five years of age, and reside within the City of Martinsville. The Clearview Early Childhood Center (CECC) houses VPI, Pre K 3, and Early Childhood Special Education programs all in one location. Our center offers a full day program with breakfast, lunch and afternoon snacks offered. Transportation is also provided for our students.

The mission of CECC is to provide each student with a memorable learning experience in a safe, creative, and supportive environment that facilitates collaboration, character development and kindergarten readiness skills. The experience of this memorable year will be exciting and rewarding. We look forward to working with you as a team to support your child’s cognitive, social, emotional, intellectual, and physical needs.

Parents play a vital role in ensuring their child’s success in school. It is critical that the school and the family collaborate as partners. I’m reminded of an African Proverb….”It takes a village to raise a child.” We invite you to come be a part of our school day by sharing your ideals, talents, and resources with us. It is important to get involved and stay involved. Together we can help our children develop a love of learning, and subsequently experience academic success.

Finally, the faculty and staff wish you and your family an outstanding school year. We are looking forward to working with you and your child as we Play, Learn and Grow together. Enjoy the Journey!
