Part-Day Preschool

Our Part-Day Preschool program is designed to allow children to become better acquainted with the world around them on a smaller schedule, offering classes a few days per week.

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

Days & Hours

  • Monday, Tuesday & Thursday
  • 9AM–2PM
  • Optional extended care available until 4PM

Throughout the year, the classes participate in:

  • Daily Circle Times
  • 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)
