Due to the current COVID-19 situation, while the ECDC has taken every preventative measure recommended by the CDC to keep our school clean and disinfected, we feel that for the health and safety of our children, families and staff, it is best to keep our center closed through Summer 2021 to do our part in helping slow the spread of this virus and keep everyone healthy. We realize the impact this decision has on your family and look forward to your child’s return. ECDC plans to be fully operational by Fall 2021. Check back for updates as we get closer to the Fall Semester. Find more details and information regarding Governor Whitmer's announcement, plans being implemented, and updates at Michigan.gov. For more University updates, please visit the COVID-19 website or the University's Public Affairs Key Issues COVID-19 website for additional information.
Welcome to the ECDC
The Early Childhood Development Center is a ‘living laboratory’ where adults as well as children come to learn. We believe that we learn from the children just as much as they are learning from us. The program is designed to promote the development of the total individual by enhancing children's skills through play.
