The Early Childhood Center is owned and operated by the First Presbyterian Church as a service mission to meet community needs. The Center serves children between the ages of three months and six years of age. Participation is open to all families, regardless of religion, race, color, or national origin. Any family whose needs can be met within the normal framework of the program is eligible for enrollment.

The First Presbyterian Church of Santa Barbara demonstrates its commitment to the well being of the young children and their families of our community by providing affordable quality early care and education.

Center tours are given most Wednesdays at 9:30 am. Tours allow you to get all your questions answered, see our rooms and yards, and get on our waiting list. There is currently a waitlist for both our Infant/Toddler and Preschool Programs. Please fill out our waitlist application here ($100 non-refundable fee). Or attend a Wednesday morning tour and enroll on our waitlist for free. For more information please contact the ECC at (805) 687-6362.
