Parent's Day Out

The Parent’s Day Out Program at ECC allows parents of children ages 16 months to 35 months to have time every week they need to get things done, or simply begin introducing their children to the world around them.

Allowing your child to be part of a class with others their age will help them develop the social skills and motor skills they need to prepare for preschool. They will read stories, play games, do crafts and get all the love and play time children their age desire.

The classrooms operate with two teachers each day. The lead teachers at ECC have a degree in Education (or something similar), so they are able to design age-appropriate curriculum for your child’s development.
