ECDC

Preschool

Offering a unique educational program for the pre-school child

About ECDC

ECDC Nursery School, Inc. is a nonprofit, tax-exempt corporation offering pre-school classes for three and four year-olds. ECDC is the product of the combined efforts of parents and teachers. Together we have created a program designed especially for the pre-school child. Our program has three cornerstones:

Learn Through Play

We believe that all pre-school children learn best through play. Each child is treated as an individual and has the opportunity to develop at his or her own pace. Our classroom environment reflects this philosophy with many independent choices available through the day. At ECDC, the process of learning is more important than the product.

Parent Involvement

The most effective education results from a partnership between parents and teachers. For this reason, ECDC was established in 1977 in Sherborn as a parent cooperative. Parents spend time in the classroom interacting with their child and the teachers. The minimum time requirement is quite modest, between 4 and 7 times per year in the classroom as your child’s “guest”. There are additional opportunities for parents who are interested, and additional involvement is welcomed. For more information, please read the Parent Participation.
