Very helpful and knowledgeable for kids. There should be more programs like this for children so they can interact and spend more time with their family.

Early childhood education is extremely important to our family here in Alaska. Because preschool through kindergarten are not required, it falls on us to try to teach and prepare our children the best we can. With ECP we can get the help we need to do so.

I have 3 kids and they all love reading because of this program.
