Early Childhood Center Principal's Message

Casey DowlerWelcome to the 2021-2022 school year at the Crestview Early Childhood Center! I am proud to serve as your Crestview ECC principal and I look forward to our continued partnership in providing our littlest Knights with the best preschool and kindergarten experience. We offer two age-appropriate classes for our preschool students. The 3-year-old class attends on Mondays and Wednesdays while our 4-year-old class attends on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. All of our preschool students attend from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on their scheduled day. Our kindergarten students attend full-day, every day classes from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

The Crestview ECC is a special place for our young students to learn and grow. We are proud of our beautiful new school and have high expectations for each and every student. Our students are kind, compassionate, and inquisitive. This year’s ECC theme is: You are a rainbow of possibilities! Make every day count! Together with our dedicated staff, we strive to make connections with students to help them feel valued, accepted, and safe. Our staff believes every child that walks through our doors is capable of achieving their goals by working hard and trying their best every day at school. When students believe in themselves and have the courage to explore new paths, true learning begins. This mindset encompasses our district’s Portrait of a Graduate where our students are encouraged to communicate with others, be self-motivated, make good choices, and become lifelong learners. The ECC staff truly believes each student can succeed and make a difference!

I look forward to getting to know all of our new Knights and their families this school year. If your family is new to the Crestview ECC, I extend a warm welcome from our ECC family and look forward to meeting you. Partnering with families and building these positive relationships is very important to me. This year I will be encouraging these partnerships to grow and flourish as we will be offering many opportunities for our families to become invested in their child’s education. My door is always open and I welcome your input. I look forward to working together to help your child reach his/her fullest potential this school year!
