ST. PETER'S

EARLY CHILDHOOD

DEVELOPMENT CENTER

Visit the ECDC website below.

 

St. Peter’s Early Childhood Development Center offers developmentally appropriate classes for children 15 months through 5 years. ECDC is licensed by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services and accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).

 

Our program is play based, and classes have low child to teacher ratios. Our teachers are dedicated to teaching children in a loving and nurturing environment. Teachers receive annual training to keep current on all aspects of early childhood education.


Philosophy

We believe children are a gift from God: special, unique persons valued for their own worth, who are growing and learning at their own pace as they actively relate to our world through play—a child’s work. The ECDC is an outreach ministry of St. Peter’s United Methodist Church.


Curriculum

The ECDC uses The Creative Curriculum, a comprehensive, research-based curriculum that helps teachers implement developmentally appropriate practice to guide learning in literacy, math, science, social studies, and the arts, while also supporting children's social/emotional, cognitive, language, and physical development.


Openings

We currently have openings in our 3-day classes for the Four Year Olds (D.O.B  9/2/14 – 9/1/15) for the 2019-2020 school year.

If interested, please call us during office hours or leave us a message with your child’s name, date of birth, your name, telephone number, and an email address where we may reach you.


If you wish to place your child on the Wait List for the 2019-2020 school year, call us during office hours or please leave us a message with your child’s name, date of birth, your name, telephone number, and an email address where we may reach you should an opening occur.

                                                                                                                                                                              

You may contact us at 281-492-0623 or at ecdc.office@stpkaty.org .

Our office hours are 9 a.m. - 3 p.m., Monday – Friday.


Registration in January 2020

Registration for the 2020-21 school year will begin January 8-22, 2020.  You may come by our office and fill out a registration form on those days.  Our office hours are 9 a.m. - 3 p.m., Monday - Friday.


We will offer tours of the school on January 10, 13, 14 and 17 at 9:45 a.m. and 10:45 a.m.


Our class placement is done by a combination point system and draw, after all registration forms have been returned. Therefore, it doesn’t matter when you turn in your form, as long as we have it by 2:30 p.m. on January 22 .


There is no registration fee until your child has been placed in a class; class lists will be posted in February, in the lobby by our office. A new Wait List for the 2020-21 school year is created at that time, and the children that did not get placed in a class will be put on that Wait List immediately.
