Welcome to MACAC- ECDC Page
Welcome to ECDC (Early Childhood Development Center).
The Early Childhood Development Center (ECDC) opened its doors in 1990. It has evolved into a trusted child care center because of it’s stability and commitment to the Pittsburgh community and their families.
ECDC, a Christian based program, offers a comprehensive educational structure that focuses on the cognitive, emotional, and physical development of children from infancy to five years of age. To ensure that children are healthy and happy, the environment is safe, nurturing and stimulating.
The Staff at ECDC make learning fun so that it produces in the children a high retention of knowledge learned—making their transition to the next learning level, up through to kindergarten, a natural and positive experience. We serve all children without regard to race, culture, social or religious background.
ECDC is licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services and is a participant in the Keystone STARS continuous quality improvement program with a STAR 4 rating - the highest rating a facility can receive.
In 2022, We moved classroom spaces to new locations in the building and grew capacity for programming from 63 to 72. In ECDC started the year with an enrollment of 45 students and we ended the year with a total of 57 students. For the whole year, we serviced a total of 70 students. Despite not reaching full enrollment ECDC waiting list continues to grow with over 60 families waiting for a spot to open for their child.
ECDC has many projects planned to help ECDC to continue to grow. We plan to add another classroom, put in sinks in Pre-k classrooms, put in water bottle filler waterfountains, add gardens outside, more outdoor equipment, as well as classroom supplies.
Thank you for supporting us in the Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community to help not only ECDC but MACAC continue to do great work in the community.
