About Us

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 visit Join Now.

We are so grateful to have an amazing organization like Children's Advocacy Center for Denton County as part of our community.
The CACDC is a non-profit agency that is committed to a multidisciplinary response to child sexual abuse. It coordinates with law enforcement, child protective services, medical and mental health professionals to help children and their non-offending family members seek justice and find healing.

We will be gathering supplies for their "Back to school" drive through August 4th.

Dr. Glenn D. Krieger, DDS,MS,FAGD of Krieger Orthodontics & Smile Design has once again graciously offered his office as a collection site for our drive. Please stop by 2520 King Arthur Blvd., Suite 105 Lewisville, TX 75056 to drop off any donations!

Thank you Dr. Krieger!!!
Thank you to our Character & Spiritual team for setting this in motion - Emily Lo & Jessica Beary Christensen

It's almost summer and while school and our meetings are taking a break our playgroups aren't!

Did you know our playgroups meet weekly (sometimes more for an impromptu play date) year round?
In addition all playgroups were invited to the museum this month thanks to the efforts of our Socials coordinator.
And our Parties coordinator is organizing a great evening for all our families to come together at the pool.

Don't miss out on all the great things our team is planning! You can join at anytime cecpta.org/join-now/
