Upcoming Early Childhood Conversations

Published on August 31st, 2020

Good Afternoon,

As a member of the Indiana Early Childhood Cabinet, I would like to invite all Indiana EC directors to continue our Monthly Zoom chats Kathy Frank had originally scheduled over the summer months.  We had a great turn out for those sessions and we hope we can continue these conversations as we jump into the school year.  You all are in our prayers as we enter the 2020-2021 school year with many challenges, but still knowing God is in control and we have been sent to serve him in all we do! May his love give us each peace and comfort as we serve in our Lutheran early childhood programs every day!


Here are the dates to mark for our upcoming EC Conversation Zoom Chats:


  • Thursday, Sept. 3 from 4:00-5:00 (EDT)


      • Topic:  Q&A with Directors who remained open during the pandemic or reopened in summer.
      • Have questions or tips to share about Covid19- come join us!


  • Thursday, October 8 from 4:00-5:00 (EDT)


      • Have a topic idea?  Please email me!


  • Thursday, November 5 from 4:00-5:00 (EDT)



The Zoom link for all these meetings will be the same and will be sent to you the week prior as a reminder.  Here is the link:


Meeting ID: 871 5217 0633

Passcode: 245239


During this challenging time of getting back into school and following many new guidelines, we hope you can join these meetings to support and uplift one another!  Our district is full of exceptional early learning leaders in our Lutheran churches and we need to pull together more than ever during this time!  


Please keep Kathy in your prayers.  Her husband, Ren, was called to his heavenly home on August 16.  We thank God for his service in Lutheran schools and the gifts he shared with so many.  Ren Frank


If there is anything I can help you with during this time, please let me know!  


I look forward to our Zoom chat on September 3!
