Play learn and grow

Welcome to DeSoto Early Childhood!  From the moment a child is born, they begin their educational path.  Our goal in the DeSoto Early Childhood Network is to begin your child’s future with a strong foundation and love of learning. Our network has quality options for the early educational opportunities for your child.  Explore our site and decide which program is best for you.  Contact information is available and the program director will be glad to discuss availability and funding options, where applicable.
