About

Diplotots, Inc. has been in operation since 1995.  Diplotots serves Department of State employees and federal employees.  Executive Child Development Center (ECDC) is currently serving the Center as its child care provider.

ECDC was established in 1976 to provide quality childcare and education to children of diverse economic and ethnic backgrounds from infancy through school‐age. We offer strong, curriculum‐based instruction led by experienced teachers who truly love children. Our fun‐filled approach uses creative learning through problem solving and encourages positive peer interaction. We believe all of these skills are critical to future academic and life time success. Our teacher and administration welcome parent involvement from parent‐teacher conferences to field trip chaperones to informal chats. Our classrooms offer an “open door” policy to parents.

Our Mission Statement

ECDC provides quality child care and education to children of diverse economic and ethnic backgrounds from infancy through school-age. ECDC’s multi-cultural environment cultivates a collaborative, multi-disciplinary approach to meeting the needs of our families. In the broader community, ECDC seeks opportunities to advocate for the well-being of all children.

Our Philosophy

ECDC has been founded on the premise that each child, regardless of circumstance, claims the world as their own. Respect, positive regard, and learning opportunities are cornerstones for healthy and happy families.

ECDC strives to provide a “community of inquiry” where children and adults are continually translating experience into meaning.
