The ECC houses several programs including Community Education Preschool, Great Start Readiness Preschool, and a Daycare and Learning Center, which includes both before- and after-school childcare for children from kindergarten to fifth grade, as well as all-day childcare with educational enrichment for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years old.

Our Personal Mastery educational experience has redefined education and has gained attention around the state and nation. Personal Mastery provides your child with personalized attention from teachers. Instead of teaching to a broad group of students without understanding of their individual strengths and weaknesses, Personal Mastery allows teachers to interact with students individually or in small groups to help them better address their weaknesses. In this way, we strive to help your child reach their full potential.PERSONAL MASTERY SPECIAL EDUCATION ENGLISH LEARNERS TECHNOLOGY IN THE CLASSROOM
