ECC launches new website and prepares for new programs

WGPC’s Early Childhood Center recently launched a brand new website.

The new website and a bright new logo to go with it, is a fresh look for the ECC and an opportunity to ramp up the school’s public presence and attract new young families in the area, said Julia Ringkamp, chair of the ECC committee.

“We want people in the Webster and Kirkwood communities to be aware of the great program that already exists here and learn about the new programs we have coming like our STEAM room (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) and our extended hours that includes a new lunch bunch program,” she said.

Julia’s two children have been attending the pre-school for some time and her oldest, Charlie, is in his fourth and final year at the ECC.

“Charlie is extremely prepared for kindergarten at Bristol Elementary School next year,” Julia said.  “I may not be, but he is.  The staff here has gone above and beyond in preparing him for kindergarten, and their programs are based on programs that are used in the Webster School District.”

On the new website, parents can learn about the ECC’s classes for children aged 1-6, including the five day a week junior kindergarten program for students soon heading off to school and Kids Day Out on Wednesdays that provides an opportunity for children to have a fun experience while their parents are away. Parents can also learn about the new STEAM room, see testimonials from other parents, register children for pre-school and pay their tuition, all online.

On January 29, from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. the ECC will host an open house.

After a welcome from Robin Cannon, director of the ECC, and an explanation of the variety of programs available for children, parents will get to visit the classrooms, visit the new STEAM room and get to meet our teachers in person, Robin said.

“They are going to learn that we have an active, caring pre-school in a happy and safe environment that provides a great opportunity for their children here in Webster Groves,” Robin said.

RSVPs are requested for the open house but not required. For more information, visit
