Physical Education

In PE class, play targets some specific goals: developing large and small muscle coordination through strength building activities, endurance, balance and hand-eye coordination. Group skills, cooperation and teamwork are practiced both in PE class and during free play.

World Language

Spanish songs, games and stories expose our young learners to the sounds and cultures of Spanish speaking people. Through repetitive oral language expression, the students become comfortable and open to expressing themselves in a new language. 


Research has shown time and again that reading aloud to children increases the likelihood of academic success, and leads to a broader vocabulary that enhances social skills. Our school librarian visits each class weekly for story time and several times during the school year the students visit the Baldwin Campus to spend time in the main Library. The ECC shares a large selection of books in their Bear Tracks Library that are used for student check-out and classroom reading.


Children attend a weekly chapel together once a week on the Baldwin Campus. With singing, simple prayers, and developmentally appropriate children’s stories, the students are introduced to the basic concepts of religion, God, prayer, spirituality, and morality. Grounded in the Episcopal tradition, lessons and prayers are inclusive and teach respect for the diversity of beliefs and practices among the students.
