Early Childhood Center

  • Our Philosophy

    We strive to provide a warm, nurturing atmosphere that promotes growth and development of the total child. Believing that all children have worth and importance, the center staff constantly work to provide experiences that will help each child meet with success and develop a positive self-concept through learning to express feelings, control actions, and develop a balance between independent and dependent behavior.

    Our Mission

    The Early Childhood Education (ECE) Centers (ECC) at South Technical High School are operated by the College and Career Readiness Department of Special School District of St. Louis County. The purpose of the ECC Center is to provide a high quality child care setting as a demonstration laboratory for students enrolled in the ECC program. The center is a place for young children to play and learn. We believe it is the responsibility of the school administration, the ECC staff, the students, and the parents, working together, to ensure the health and well-being of the children who attend our centers.
