Welcome to the A.W. Spalding
Early Childhood Educational Center
At AWS in our Early Childhood Educational Center (ECEC) we provide an option for young children to begin the formal learning process in a self-guided classroom setting.
ECEC follows the Southern Union created curriculum for Early Childhood, Pebbles which is a faith-based curriculum creating an environment that encourages children to develop a personal relationship with God.
Mission and Vision
The mission of the Early Childhood Education Center is to partner with parents to nurture children in ways that promote spiritual, physical, mental, emotional, and social development through developmentally appropriate educational practices. Our vision is to provide a quality program that prepares students for early school success.
Our education is about letting children make choices. At every age, students learn in different ways and at different rates. Our teachers are especially sensitive to the individual learning style of each child, and allow children to excel at their own pace. ECEC utilizes certain teaching strategies and other best practices in early childhood education such as an; artistic environment where children can spontaneously ask questions, investigate, create and explore new ideas.
ECEC Director’s Message
It is my privilege to be the director of the ECEC. The energy and love of learning is very contagious. It’s impossible to put in words how beautifully our classrooms are set up so I invite you to come see for yourself. Our one way viewing windows are a great way to observe them in action.
The ECEC teachers love what they are doing! Their caring and patient nature is very evident. The faith-based lessons through the day encourage the children to develop a personal relationship with God while achieving their fullest potential. Ask to see the beautify crafted Bible story manipulates that were developed especially for us.
Come by and see us in action.
