Welcome To DeSoto Early Childhood Center.


The mission of our school to prepare children to love learning and to prepare their families to be involved in their children’s education and their well being.


We are accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and have been awarded Governor Bush’s Gold Seal Award for excellence in educating young children. At DeSoto Early Childhood Center we know that young children learn best through being actively Involved in developmentally appropriate practices.


We encourage and welcome our parents to serve as volunteers at our school in a variety of ways: as tutors in the classrooms, as members on our school advisory council, as chaperones for field trips, and as special projects coordinators. It is exciting to watch our children and families grow as they go through our program of learning and achieving.


Thank you  for visting our website and we especially thank Elizabeth Sample for the wonderful development of this site.
