Red Bridge Early Childhood Center (ECC) is a ministry of Red Bridge United
Methodist Church. Located in the heart of south Kansas City, our mission is to reach out to young families in the
community with children ages 2 through 5. ECC is based upon principles which promote the development of each child's
God-given potential for spiritual, scholastic, physical, and social growth. The preschool strives to develop each child's
capabilities and self-esteem in a caring and supportive environment, with respect for the child's dignity and individuality.
Each classroom is staffed with a lead teacher and an aide in accordance with the Safe Sanctuaries policy of the
United Methodist Church. Children experience weekly music and Gymboree classes, and chapel time with Pastor Trista once
a month. We offer "in-house field trips"with a variety of educational presentations brought to preschool.
Past presentations have included JoHo the storyteller, Rapping Roy, the Kansas City Zoo Mobile and Reggie the Magician.
ECC is open Monday through Friday. The hours of operation are 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM, with optional extended days
until 3:00 PM. Our school year starts in September and ends in May.
