Learn to Play, Play to Learn

Deer Park Early Childhood Center Mission:
To provide appropriate instructional practices that will foster growth and development for young learners in Deer Park ISD.
Vision Statement:

All children who graduate from the Early Childhood Center will be ready for Kindergarten.
Value Statement:
Young children learn best through play. At the Early Childhood Center, education begins with teaching appropriate skills and expectations first and then academic concepts through play; this is where our motto, Learn to Play, Play to Learn is derived. Our school utilizes a collaborative approach where children, teacher, parents, paraprofessionals, therapists, and administrators work as a team to provide a support network for the success of all children.
