that the ECP should provide an atmosphere rich in opportunities for growth and acceptance;
that each child has a right to childhood in a world that sometimes forgets childhood’s importance;
in providing safety and security in the promise of God’s love for each child regardless of race or religious belief;
that children and families affirm each other as they grow together during the early childhood years.
It may look like play, but it is a child’s work to manipulate, change, try again, and discover. Our curriculum is developmental. We offer many opportunities to stretch and expand horizons while respecting the child’s need and right to learn at his or her own pace. Through daily reports, weekly and monthly newsletters, notes and calendars, and conferences, your child’s teachers will share the curriculum your child is exploring in class. Curriculum guidelines are available in the director’s office and in each of the classrooms if you would like to view them. Pre-K and Kindergarten curriculum is aligned to all Oklahoma state standards.
ECP serves children one-year-old through Kindergarten. Preschool children are placed in age-appropriate classes based on a September 1st birthday cut-off. This means, for example, that a child must be three as of September 1st to be accepted into the Preschool 3’s class. In our Children’s Day Out classes, children are placed into one of four classes according to their birthdate as of September 1st .
