“ECDC is a wonderful place for kids! We have been thrilled to be a part of the ECDC-family for over 10 years. When asking our now 7-year-old what his favorite month of the year is he said, “June/July when I get to go to ECDC for the summer!” The activities, field trips, learning opportunities, and amazing teachers have been a key part of our children’s growth. We highly recommend it to all of our friends.”
