What is CECPTA?

The Carrollton Early Childhood PTA is an organization dedicated to providing activities, support, friendships and education for parents of children age newborn through preschool. We are a part of the same network of PTAs that you find in public schools, but since our children are babies, toddlers and preschoolers, our focus is geared more for this age range and we have lots of FUN! Possibly the biggest reason for becoming involved is to meet, socialize and network with other parents in the Carrollton area. Click here to learn more about CECPTA’s history.

We hold regular meetings once a month, September through May, some of which feature speakers whose topics include child development, parenting issues, and various other topics of interest to parents of young children. The Carrollton Early Childhood PTA welcomes visitors at all meetings –  click here to learn more about our monthly meetings & programs.

We sponsor activities and playgroups all year, even during the summer. Our members live mainly in the Carrollton area, although anyone with children under 6 years old is welcome to join. Click here to learn more about our activities designed specifically for our members.

For more information about joining CECPTA contact Stella Antic or click here for an application.
