Early Childhood Center

The Early Childhood Center (ECC) is a preschool ministry of Church at the Crossing. 

Since 1983, the ECC has excelled in providing a safe, nurturing and Christian learning environment for children aged 16 months to 5 years. Offering All-Day, Part-Day, and Parent's Day Out (PDO) programs, the ECC staff has worked closely to design a preschool experience that is affordable, accessible and exciting, allowing children to explore the world around them as they prepare for Kindergarten.
