On Friday May 6, Trumbull Early Childhood Education Center (TECEC) will celebrate its 10-year anniversary.

Over the past decade, TECEC has taken incredible care of many children in our community, including those with special needs.  

Founded in 2005, TECEC was the first free-standing public special needs program in Connecticut.

TECEC believes that no child is typical; that every child is unique; and all children have valuable contributions to the lives and educations of their classmates.  

To date, TECEC has been privileged to serve over 3,000 students and their families.

Over the years, the generosity of the TECEC families, through various fundraising programs, have allowed the school to provide numerous and valuable additions to the educational setting and experience.

Some of these additions include the automatic external defibrillator, rock climbing wall, playground equipment and two way radios. The proceeds from this fund raiser will go directly back to the TECEC to support the children in their education environment.

For the 10-year anniversary, the TECEC Father's Club is running a brick fundraiser.  

The fathers will be selling personalized engraved bricks — with an April 1 purchase deadline — that will be installed in the center island in front of the school.  

This is a great chance to participate in an important fundraiser and to permanently leave a family's mark at the school.

Bricks start at $35 and residents can even purchase a keepsake replica tile. All credit cards are accepted on the engraving website link, a paypal account is not necessary.
