How Did I Get on This Mailing List?
If you're receiving this weekly newsletter by email, it's because you either subscribed, registered for one of our Zoom events or more likely you wrote your email address on our EECC EarlyON registration card. It's implied consent, in that case. Two things we want you to know:
1) We ALWAYS keep your contact information private. We will never sell, trade or share your email address or any other information about you/your family, with anyone.
2) If you wish to unsubscribe (link at the bottom of the email), nobody's feelings will be hurt! We want this to be a newsletter parents and caregivers enjoy, but if it feels like "one more thing" in your inbox, we're OK with you unsubscribing. There will always be a link on our Facebook page if you'd prefer to find it there.
