Nurturing your child's innate curiosity
Children enrolled at ECA learn to explore the world around them using all five senses and begin to think in creative, often multifaceted ways. Your child will be exposed to a one-of-a-kind, high-quality bilingual curriculum based on early learning standards that address the multiple domains of development, academic, social-emotional, and physical. We nurture the innate curiosity that leads to a lifelong love of learning.
Learning in English and Chinese
Academically, the school highlights literacy and math, and dedicated blocks of time to skill mastery in both English and Chinese. Listening, speaking, reading, and writing are all areas of focus in building literacy skills. Children’s interests are ignited by molding the curriculum that give children leadership opportunities to discover new things on their own, investigate, imagine and create. This gives them ownership of their learning as well as critical repetition in problem solving, communicating and collaborating.
Bi-lingual Preschool & Pre-K
Our Bi-lingual classrooms provoke the excitement of learning the expression of language. Our curriculum provides for full integration of the Creative Curriculum, with an emphasis on language arts and mathematics, as well as on the social emotional, cognitive, language and physical growth of the child. Chinese language instruction will be provided by our bi-lingual Chinese early childhood educators.
Our uniquely designed music time will help stimulate the hands-on learning experience of music and movement.

Developmental Profiles which evaluate children’s developmental growth (including the infant program) are performed by the teachers and distributed to the parents twice per year during parent conferences. Transitions into the next classroom is based on availability of space in that group, developmental readiness and chronological age.
Meetings to discuss your child are available upon request and welcomed. Please feel free to ask your teacher if you have any questions.
"ECA has a wonderful curriculum with clearly outlined learning objectives. The teachers are intentional in their interactions with our daughter yet the instruction is seamlessly integrated into creative play. She has a structured daily routine complete with healthy snacks/meals and naps which helps her feel safe and secure. She's also challenged and it's thrilling to watch her thrive in such a diverse, vibrant environment."
