Welcome to the East Dallas Lakewood Early Childhood PTA

Enriching the lives of East Dallas Children

The Lakewood Early Childhood PTA (LECPTA) is a network of more than 500 Lakewood and East Dallas families of expectant parents and parents with children from birth through Kindergarten. We are a huge support of each other through the hardships, and joys, of parenthood. Our group is a resource of information on parenting, daycare, education systems, neighborhood activities, support from other moms and dads with kids of the same age, and have a lot of fun! We encourage community involvement throughout the year with membership-sponsored events, including holiday parties, adult outings, speakers, kids’ activities and playgroups, all organized and run by our board members. There's something for everyone!


Join us, enjoy all we have to offer and become a part of our cozy East Dallas/Lakewood family. Click here to join!


Our blog, written by one of our own parents in the community, Christy Tornelli, will feature a monthly topic of common interest for young families such as:

  • How to prepare for your child's education
  • Educational, social, active events within our community
  • How to maintain family happiness while considering parental individuality and support
