About Us

Are you the parent of a young child aged newborn through kindergarten? Then Strongsville Early Childhood PTA (SECPTA) is for you! SECPTA (formerly the Strongsville Preschool PTA) is a non-profit organization that provides a variety of activities for its 70+ member families that are supportive, social, informative, and fun. Membership includes activities such as local children's outings & activities, play groups, crafts, story times, educational events, theme parties, and social events for moms, dads and couples, plus national PTA membership benefits.

SECPTA is a local unit of the Strongsville PTA Council, and Ohio PTA and National PTA. We are not affiliated with any specific preschool or day care facility. SECPTA is open to all local community members with young children. Strongsville residency is not required. We welcome families of any race, color, nationality or ethnic origin.

From September to April, board meetings are held twice a year and general meetings are held from 7-8 on the third Tuesday of each month at the High School Media Center.  Members often go out after to socialize. Refreshments are served and all are invited to attend; young children are welcome.  Board members and Committee chairs should attend each meeting, and all other members are always welcome.

Strongsville Early Childhood PTA shares the objectives of the National PTA and Ohio PTA. These objectives are:
  • To promote the welfare of children and youth in home, school, community, and place of worship.
  • To raise the standards of home life.
  • To secure adequate laws for the care and protection of children and youth.
  • To bring into closer relation the home and the school, that parents and teachers may cooperate intelligently in the education of children and youth.
  • To develop between educators and the general public such united efforts as will secure for all children and youth the highest advantages in physical, mental, social, and spiritual education.
