Coronavirus Update

April 2, 2020

Dear ECDP Families,

Governor Abbott has officially closed Texas Public Schools through the month of April.  Although we are licensed as a childcare facility by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, we have heard your feedback through our school survey and are sensitive to your concerns about returning to school before the governor permits public schools to resume. Therefore, Holy Covenant Early Childhood Development Program is henceforth closed until May 4, 2020. We hope that we will not have to extend our closure beyond that date.

While the doors of learning may be closed at ECDP, the windows of learning are wide open. Through the month of April, we will be posting classes through the Bloomz app. This app will allow teachers to post video lessons to your children as well as play activities that will extend your child’s learning. Your child’s teacher will communicate with you through the Bloomz app. Some classes will be making packets for students if necessary for their lessons, and the details for packet distribution will be communicated to you through the teacher’s regular communication method. Your child’s teacher will send you an invitation to our Bloomz site through email in the next few days. By Monday, Tuesday at the latest, you should have access to your child’s class through Bloomz.

The coronavirus has drastically changed the way ECDP is doing preschool. We know this is not the best way to do preschool. It certainly is not the way we prefer to do preschool, but it is the best way we can do it under these circumstances.

It has been an adventure doing E-learning with your children through Facebook, but it is not as good as face to face. We miss being together. We pray that your family stays well and blooms in this difficult time, and we want to do all we can to keep learning fun even if it’s at home!

Sincerely,
Beth McClure

Our Preschool

The Early Childhood Development Program has been meeting the needs of preschoolers (18 months through Kindergarten) since 1978.

ECDP reaches families in Carrollton, Dallas, Plano, Coppell, Lewisville, The Colony, Flower Mound, Little Elm and other surrounding areas.

ECDP

Preschool classes meet between Monday and Thursday from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. We are licensed by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services.

We are here to help children discover their world as they learn to love God, themselves, and others in a caring, nurturing, and Christian environment. Holy Covenant is a preschool for the whole family. As our students become friends, their families also become friends, pulling our school community into a tight, loving space for our children. We are an ideal bridge between home and school.
