Our History

  • Opened in 1991, KECC serves over 350 families with children between the ages of 2 and 10 years from the greater St. Louis area. As part of the Kirkwood R-7 School District, the center falls under the jurisdiction of the school board. It is a self-funded, non-profit agency, receiving funding from tuition and fund-raisers.

    KECC offers full time and part time preschool programs, early childhood special education services, and a summer camp for grade school children. We also house the Kirkwood R-7 School District Parents as Teachers program and the Early Childhood Special Education Diagnostic Support Team. For more information about these programs please contact the office staff.
