We believe that children deserve early childhood experiences that develop their multi-faceted potential and increase their love of learning. Mutual respect between teachers, children and families are hallmarks of our school.
Teachers build on the perceptual and cognitive powers of children. Experiences are provided that meet children's needs and stimulate learning in all developmental areas: physical, social, emotional and intellectual.
Each child is viewed as a unique person with an individual pattern and timing of growth and development. Different levels of ability, development and learning styles are expected, accepted and used to design appropriate activities.
Our nurturing environment is a great way to start your child's school experience.Classes available for 2, 3, & 4-Year-Olds and Creation Station - a program for Parent/Caregiver and Child

Strong and on-going parent/teacher communication is one of the keys to our success at ECC. Teachers have daily contact with parents at drop-off and pick –up and parents may request a meeting with teachers whenever necessary. The school communicates daily with families through an interactive website where families can see pictures and read about the day's activities.
An active parent/staff run Early Childhood Committee meets regularly to plan activities, celebrations and discuss topics/policies that impact the ECC.
Class parents play an active role in communicating with other parents to plan events, reach out tofamilies during life-cycle events, and organize activities outside of school.
