About Us

St. Louis 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.


ECDC 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.
