The Brookwood Baptist Church Early Childhood Center has provided quality childcare and instruction in a safe, nurturing environment for over 40 years. The ECC was started in 1973 as a ministry to support parents in all areas of their children’s development: spiritual, physical, cognitive, social and emotional. That remains our mission today. We strive to ensure that every child and family will be touched in a Christ-like way through the teachers and staff of the ECC.
Our Director, Diane Duke, has served in various capacities in the ECC for 29 years. She has been the Director since 2008. The teachers and staff participate in training and continuing education opportunities in order to provide a quality, Christ-centered program. For all the staff, it is a joy to have former ECC children as adults bringing their own children to participate in the variety of programs and opportunities we offer. The Early Childhood Center continues to be a vital ministry of Brookwood Baptist Church.
We currently minister to approximately 180 children by offering a variety of programs and opportunities.

Transitional Kindergarten (TK) is offered for children whose birthdays fall late in the year and who may not be quite ready to attend 5K in public school. Classes are small which provides for more one-on-one interaction between child and teacher. TK is provided for children who attend during full day care hours, as well as for Morning Instruction.
