Mission and Beliefs
Beginning with The Word.
We bring Christ to the Children who attend the ECDC each day, through our thoughts, words and actions.
Christ the King Cathedral Early Childhood Development Center is where families with young children learn, share and grow in the spirit of Jesus Christ. The ECDC is child-centered and committed to providing a nurturing Montessori environment, developing lasting relationships with families, and providing opportunities to challenge young children. We offer a rich learning atmosphere using Montessori Curriculum which promotes a child’s natural curiosity and a sense of excitement about learning. The faculty and staff are faith-filled, dedicated, knowledgeable in their professions, and strive to meet the individual needs of the children. The center is sensitive to family issues and encourages parents/guardians to fulfill their role as the first educator of their child.
The ECDC is licensed through the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services. We meet or exceed the Minimum Standards. Our goal is to read, absorb, train and participate in learning about Montessori, what it is and the philosophy of Montessori. The NAEYC (National Association of the Education of Young Children) is an elite accreditation which includes positive relationships, curriculum, effective teaching approaches, ongoing assessments, nutrition and health, educated teaching staff, strong family and community ties all within a safe physical environment. The NAEYC goal is working toward exceptional child care for the community of CTK and the surrounding area. We are currently enrolled in the self-study process for NAEYC Accreditation. The Center is operated under the jurisdiction of the Advisory School Board, Pastor, and the Center Director.
