You wouldn’t plant a seed without watering, and you wouldn’t expect it to bloom without sunlight. Similarly, children need different types of nourishment to flourish. Community involvement is another way to help your child grow.

We love watching our ECEC seedlings discover their giving hearts. Not only will they learn about their community and how to be helpful contributors, they’ll also have many opportunities to lend a hand!

We are a local school who supports local organizations. Together, we give back by sharing knowledge and resources with others. We’re always open to new community partnership opportunities!

ECEC has been a part of Pinehold Gardens CSA since 2015. Every Wednesday afternoon or Thursday morning, ECEC picks a box of produce from Pinehold Gardens here in Oak Creek. We introduce families and children to new and different produce while supporting local farmers. Many of the items from the CSA are served as fresh snacks at ECEC.

WHAT-PARENTS-SAY

The teachers at ECEC are wonderful, skilled and caring people. Our children have so many wonderful memories of their time spent with the amazing staff at ECEC. We can never thank you enough!

Family of Four, Oak Creek

My daughter started here when she was 3, and is now in their Summer Camp program. She loves her teacher and, although she will be going to her public school 4K program this year, ECEC has built an amazing foundation for her.
