The Early Education Center is for full-time only care. The goal of the EEC is to provide a quality, enriching, and stimulating developmental preschool/child development program that will help children get a good start in life before they enter school. The EEC wants to reduce the number of at-risk children and improve future educational achievement. Each child's intellectual, physical, spiritual, social, and emotional needs will be addressed at his/her level with developmentally appropriate teaching strategies. Breakfast, lunch, and a snack are provided. Youth membership is required.

Our Program

Our program features a thematic approach to learning and offers a variety of intriguing activities to stimulate early development.
