All-Day Preschool

Our All-Day Preschool program is designed for working families to have a preschool and childcare experience with a schedule to meet their needs.

The classrooms operate with two-morning and two-afternoon teachers. The lead teachers at ECC have a degree in Education (or similar degree), so they are able to design age-appropriate curriculum for your child’s development. This program is registered with the State of Indiana Division of Children and Family Services. 

Throughout the year, the classes participate in:

  • Daily Circle Time in both morning and afternoon
  • In-house visitors
  • Off-campus field trips
  • Weekly Bible lessons with a discussion & craft
  • Monthly all-school Chapel with the ECC and Church at the Crossing Kids! Ministry staff

At ECC, your child will engage and learn through:

  • Play & story time
  • Music & movement
  • Centers
  • Arts & crafts
  • Large muscle play (inside gym or outdoor playground)
  • Imagination & exploration

They will be exposed to:

  • Shapes & colors
  • Reading & writing ("Handwriting Without Tears" curriculum for older classes)
  • Math & science
  • Arts & crafts
  • Patterns & more!
