Southside Early Childhood Center
is one of the few early childhood centers in the state. We have highly trained and certified teachers who service 3, 4, and 5 year olds. Southside Early Childhood Center is committed to preparing students for success in  the 21st century.  One of the accomplishments we are most proud of is being a school accredited by NAEYC which is the National Association for the Education of Young Children.  Here at Southside Early Childhood Center, we strive daily to implement developmentally appropriate practice for all of the students we serve.
