So much happens at the Circle Time rug! While we sing and share together, preschoolers are learning our first 5 goals: telling others what they think & feel, following directions, sticking with a task, safely moving bodies, and caring for our needs.

Welcome to Edgewood Early Childhood Center, the preschool program of the Richland-Bean Blossom Community School Corporation! At EECC, we know that a whole-child approach to education, where children develop not only math and literacy skills but also social-emotional, physical, and cognitive skills, is developmentally appropriate and better prepares children for life well beyond their time in a classroom. We provide our children opportunities to play and learn in community with peers and loving adults, where they build friendships, explore their interests, and take creative risks in a safe environment. EECC is a Paths to Quality Level 3 preschool, meaning that in addition to meeting and exceeding all state health and safety requirements, our staff meets high levels of education standards and employ a recognized curriculum (The Creative Curriculum) to meet Indiana’s Early Learning Foundations, the learning objectives preschoolers meet to be prepared for kindergarten success. Because of our high quality rating, we are also able to accept tuition vouchers for qualifying four-year-old students through On My Way Pre-K. We welcome you to explore our site and invite you to partner with us in your child’s early education!
