Washington Early Childhood Center was originally Booker T. Washington Elementary School, a seven-room building completed in 1958 at a cost of approximately $80,000. Children first entered the 2 1/2 acre campus on Jan. 26, 1959. In 1989-90, the school name was changed to Washington Early Childhood Center, housing kindergarten students from Lee, Moore and Carver elementary zones and all pre-kindergarten students. In 1999, WECC became the district's main Head Start campus, serving only students in that program and pre-kindergarten.

Booker T. Washington was an American educator, author, orator and adviser to presidents of the United States. Between 1890 and 1915, Washington was the dominant leader in the African-American community. Washington was from the last generation of black American leaders born into slavery and became the leading voice of the former slaves and their descendants. His base was the Tuskegee Institute, a historically black college in Alabama. In 1895, he gave a speech known as the "Atlanta Compromise," which brought him national fame. Over the years, despite his travels and hectic work schedule, he remained as principal of Tuskegee. In 1915, at the age of 59, he collapsed in New York City and was brought home to Tuskegee, where he died on November 14, 1915.
