St. Peter’s ECDC is one of the finest early childhood development programs in the Katy area. Dedicated teachers and a strong parent advisory council keep the standards high. The ECDC provides a warm, nurturing environment where children can grow and develop spiritually, cognitively, physically, emotionally, and socially in a Christian atmosphere.
Our classrooms are center based and, through developmentally appropriate play, ECDC children build skills in language, art, math, science and social studies.
Established in 1980 as a ministry of St. Peter’s United Methodist Church, the ECDC has programs for children ages 15 months through 5 years. We are committed to meeting the needs of children and to encouraging the development of Christian homes and families through parent participation and education.
The ECDC is licensed by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services. We are accredited by the
Our curriculum is grounded in developmentally appropriate practice: we teach in ways that match how children develop and learn. We see child development as a continuum, with children developing in four areas—social/emotional, physical, cognitive, and language. We foster every child’s development in these areas, while at the same time, we are aware of each child’s individual differences and needs.
We make every effort to provide the very best learning conditions for young children. Low child-to-teacher ratios, curriculum, equipment, and facilities are all important parts of the learning environment. Our classrooms are center-based, providing many opportunities for hands-on activities that develop creative thinking, problem solving, language, and social skills. In addition, weekly enrichment opportunities include chapel, music, motor skills, and Spanish (for 4 year olds).
We are also extremely proud of our teachers and assistant teachers, who are degreed or CDA-certified professional educators. All staff members are caring, nurturing persons who love children and are well-trained in early childhood education.
ECDC registration takes place in January each year. Children may also be put on our wait list at any time. Our program runs from late August through May and follows the KISD school calendar for holidays and bad weather days.
