Flexible Programs

Our preschool is designed to accommodate your changing daily schedule


What sets DECC apart from the rest of the area preschools? Our flexible programming.  Beginning at 18 months, students can be enrolled for 1 to 5 days each week -- in any combination of days you choose!   You may add days, switch days, and even cancel days.  The same holds true for our lunch and afternoon programming. 


Additionally, we  offer  a daily early drop-off beginning at 7 a.m. and afternoon programming until 6 p.m.  If something unexpected comes up, no worries!  Your child will always have a warm, loving, nurturing place with quality teachers taking care of him or her.  It is truly the best place to be!
