Angel Creek Preschool began as a Mother’s Morning Out ministry for St. Ann’s Catholic Parish, in the late 1980s. The program was led by Linda Beste and a group of very dedicated mothers. The school was originally furnished with homemade furniture, plastic chairs and a few donated toys.
In the fall of 1990, Pam Newby became the director and successfully transitioned the program into a 5 day licensed preschool. The program was named Early Childhood Discovery Center (ECDC). Over the years the ECDC program became a highly sought after preschool by the local and surrounding communities. Pam Newby built and held that reputation as a top tier preschool for 23 years. She retired in 2012.
In March 2013, the Dallas Diocese requested that each childcare program and preschool of the Dallas Diocese become independent from their respective parish. With continued growth and success, in July of 2013, the preschool’s 20+ year program became a nonprofit corporation. The school is now known as Angel Creek Preschool.
The mission to educate the youngest of our children in our Catholic faith, traditions and values is still a top priority for both St. Ann Catholic Parish and Angel Creek Preschool.
