Serving Children Ages 0-5 and Their Families in Palatine and Wheeling Townships
Kristen Ford, Project Director

Welcome to the Early Childhood Developmental Enrichment Center (ECDEC) website.  ECDEC is an early childhood program that serves children between the ages of 3 and 5 years old who have been identified as being “at-risk” and who live within the townships of Palatine and Wheeling.  We also support families with our birth to 3 program.
