Come Grow at the Early Childhood Center

ECCThank you for your interest in Ascension Lutheran Early Childhood Center (ECC). Through both our Infant and Toddler Program and Preschool Program we provide a loving and nurturing environment for children ages 3 months through 5 years old to grow and learn.

At Ascension Lutheran ECC children discover their God-given talents and gifts in our new, state-of-the-art facility which centers around a beautiful Nature Explore Certified Outdoor Classroom that cultivates learning through thoughtfully planned outdoor spaces.

ECCOur mission is to share God’s love with His children and provide a welcoming Christian environment where a child can grow spiritually, socially, and intellectually. The ECC is open Monday through Friday from 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM. We offer several full and part-time options to meet the different needs of families.

We operate on a non-discriminatory basis and admit children without regard to race, religion, or ethnic origin. The ECC is a community that welcomes new families, and we connect with each other throughout the year during Mom and Dad Nights, the Christmas Program, the Spring Auction, and the yearly visit to Underwood Family Farms.
