Welcome to MECEC,
MECEC is celebrating its 14th year! It has grown from a small group of twos and threes, originally organized to serve the needs of a fast-growing community of young families with the need for early childhood education.
Children learn best when they are engaged in meaningful play. At MECEC, whether the
children are in the construction room, art room, playroom, or activity room their cognitive,
physical, and psychosocial well-being is engaged. I invite you to browse our website, visit our
preschool, and learn more about our program.
Play, Discover, Learn, Grow
