The East Woods Early Childhood Center (ECC) is a wonderful educational beginning for your child. It provides a gentle transition from home to school in a loving and nurturing environment.
ECC consists of Pre-Nursery, Nursery and Pre-Kindergarten classes. Our half-day Monday through Friday classes address the social, emotional, physical, creative and intellectual development of young children and prepare them for later academic challenges. "Play with purpose," both individually and in organized groups, heightens children's interest and channels their learning in a stimulating and literature rich environment. Through enjoyable daily activities such as listening to children's books read aloud, storytelling, singing, puppetry and role-playing, our students improve their abilities to express themselves clearly, listen attentively and use their imaginations while deepening their understanding of the world. Educational games and exercises develop the building blocks for reading, writing, science and mathematics.
Technology is introduced and delivered through age-appropriate educational software. Students attend library, physical education and music classes on a weekly basis. Our Nursery and Pre-Kindergarten students also have the opportunity to use our state-of-the-art science lab throughout the year.
The goals of the Early Childhood Center Program are to make children happy, curious and eager to learn; to ensure that they enjoy coming to school; to instill a sense of pride in themselves and curiosity about the world; and, to prepare them to be successful academically.
