Early Childhood Programs

ECP is a weekday ministry of Clay Church that serves children from 6 weeks to 12 years of age and is a  year round program set in a Christian environment that focuses on God’s love along with age appropriate academically based curriculum.  We offer traditional and flexible programs which allow families to choose what fits their own personal needs. All classroom curricula are developed by age appropriate goals and objectives which are stepping stones toward preparing young children for their Kindergarten year and beyond.
