Early Childhood School-North

Message from Vice Principal, Alisha J. Lee

Dear Parents,

We thank you for entrusting your children with us on a daily basis with our talented preschool team! Early Childhood has proven to be beneficial in the growth and development of our youngest learners. Therefore, bringing your child to school daily is the first step to ensuring a quality education. Let’s make 100% attendance our goal! We will track our monthly data and highlight our students with perfect attendance!

The curriculum that is offered to our students is the Creative Curriculum.   The Creative Curriculum focuses on developing physical, cognitive, social and emotional as well as language development for our youngest learners.   Students at our school are exposed to high quality educational experiences that begin the moment they walk into school. Our Highly Qualified Teachers target specific educational skills through large group, small group and one-on-one learning experiences.

We believe early childhood education is so very important. As we are committed to providing students with the best educational experiences possible, it is important for students to attend school everyday- ready to learn.  Instruction begins at 8:45am. It is also extremely important that your children arrive to school on time at 8:25am. Dismissal time is at 2:55pm. If you are interested in Extended Day from 8:00am-4:00pm please see our Family Advocates.

Vision & Mission of ECS-North


Our preschool team will partner with families and students with an emphasis on educational opportunities to promote an early start for school success.  We will strive to develop opportunities which will enrich each child’s social emotional, physical, cognitive, intellectual and creative abilities.


The mission of ECS-North is to welcome and support families through our Head Start program as we prepare students for Kindergarten.  We believe in providing students and families with high quality experiences as everyone deserves exceptional service.
