We are currently enrolling for 3 spots in our Older 3's Class!

The Early Childhood Development Center Has MOVed!

After 30 years in Wozniak Hall, ECDC is moving to our new location on the St. Joseph Street side of the St. Louis School campus. 


Early Childhood Development Center

Early Childhood Development Center (ECDC) is committed to serving young children, from ages 8 months to 3 years old. The program fosters self-confidence, positive self-esteem, respect, and empathy. Children are encouraged to think, reason, question, experiment, and develop decision-making skills. They are taught how to model appropriate behavior and to express their feelings accordingly.

Is ECDC Certified?

The Early Childhood Development Center is licensed by the Texas Department of Protective and Regulatory Services and is accredited with the National Accreditation Commission for Early Care and Education Programs (NAC) and Texas Rising Star.


What Does ECDC Offer?

The program practices a variety of teaching methods to enhance the learning of every child. We combine Montessori, Emergent Curriculum, and High Scope teaching methods to be able to teach the whole child how God intended him to learn. Additionally, the following are offered:

  • Flexible schedules to meet your children's needs (2-5 day options)
  • Low teacher-to-child ratio
  • Active learning is encouraged
  • Extracurricular activities including gymnastics for ages 3 and up
  • Hands-on activities
  • Lessons are built around play and experimental learning
  • Age-based curriculum
