The curriculum for the daily program is based on weekly themes or units designed to provide a great variety of opportunities for children. For each age level, curriculum is planned according to developmentally appropriate practices. Bible Stories, simple prayers, and Biblical principles are an integral part of the curriculum for each of the four preschool classes.
"Little Church" is a special time each week for the combined classes to hear a Bible Story and sing worship songs especially for young children.
A spacious fenced in playground is a favorite place for activity for the children who attend the ECC.
The safety and security of your children is important to us. To protect your children, we have installed a security system on each of the entrances to the Early Childhood Center. The people that you have authorized to be able to pick-up your child may be issued a security device for entrance into the ECC. (A refundable deposit is required for each device issued.)
To enter the ECC, hold your security device near the reader device located beside the entrance door. When the light turns green, you can open the door. If you forget your device, use the intercom located above the security reader to contact the ECC staff. The security devices will only open the ECC entrance during normal drop-off and pick-up hours.
