Diamond Street Early Childhood Center (DSECC) is a non-profit school that enables families to be successful. Our programs provide a strong foundation of education for children in their most critical years while providing convenient childcare for working families. We also offer scholarships for families in need.
DSECC’s mission is to provide nurturing, safe, educational childcare that emphasizes the worth and uniqueness of each child, in a Christian atmosphere that promotes peaceful resolution, tolerance, and service which is consistent with the Anabaptist mission of Akron Mennonite Church.
1969 - A group of mothers from Akron Mennonite Church started a mom and child preschool time.
