“I am a Stuart Superstar, who will go very far, I will live by the Power of 3 and will

respect you and me!”

Welcome to the J. Cresswell Stuart Early Childhood Development Center (ECDC)!

I am excited and honored that you have selected our preschool program for your

child’s academic experience. We welcome and value your child as an individual with

their unique talents and abilities.

Our goal is to help our students explore, learn, discover, and build a strong

academic foundation in a diverse, inclusive, caring, and safe educational

environment. We strive to educate and address the needs of every child using

developmentally appropriate practices and a nurturing approach. Our early

childhood center is staffed by highly trained and experienced professionals.

Everyone is committed to providing young learners with opportunities that expose

them to rich, engaging, and joyful learning experiences. We are extremely excited

about the work we do each day to help every child experience success. Through a

robust curriculum, our students are academically challenged, engaged, and

encouraged to be active participants in their own learning.

J. Cresswell Stuart Early Childhood Development Center believes that children are

our most precious asset for future creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurship

advancements. We will continuously strive to promote developmental skills in

academics and social-emotional learning. Our scholars will engage in hands-on

learning experiences, individualized instruction, and support programs and services

to encourage them to become active participants in their learning.

We are excited that you are a part of the family! Together, we will make great

things happen!
