Welcome to Crockett ECC's website.  In 2002, Ennis Independent School District made a bold move when it opened the doors to Crockett Early Childhood Center. Currently, approximately 450 students attend Crockett.  The facility is an architectural award recipient.  The inside of the building beckons visitors with its nautical theme.  Underwater murals are painted in the gym, library and hallways.

Each nine weeks, students are recognized for achievements at an awards assembly. There are numerous opportunities for students to shine, including the Lighthouse Citizenship Award, Perfect Attendance, Top Writers, Reading and Math, and others.

The motto, “A Safe Harbor for ALL Children” is a core value staff members take seriously.  The mission, Charting a Course for Success is sought after daily.  Crockett ECC provides both a solid foundation and an inspiring introduction to academics.  It is a fun place to learn.

Come learn with us!
