Education….every child’s birthright!


Last academic year was a great year for ECCDS. We supported 81 children across the region, 34 in Northumberland and 47 in County Durham. This is made up of 26 'Preschool' children, 30 Key Stage 1, 18 Key Stage 2 and 7 Life Skills. This year we look forward to working with you again and supporting even more families.
