Application Process

Currently enrolled families will be emailed a link to an online application on October 1st.  The public will have access to the online application beginning November 1st.  Any family who is interested in our program is encouraged to complete this online application.  The application link is continuously available and entries will be time/date stamped.   Placement is based upon the date of completed online applications. 

The ECC does secure a few slots each year for at-risk students and can also alter waitlist assignment number due to at-risk nature or concerns. 

Screening Process

Developmental Screening is a brief check of a young child’s language abilities, play skills, fine and gross motor control and math concepts; including recognizing colors, shapes, counting, size differences and classifying.  All those that apply to the program will be asked to participate in our screening process which takes place in February.  The information gathered from screening assists us in creating balance in classrooms and does not impact acceptance to our program.  

Tuition Information

A non-refundable deposit of $200.00 collected after acceptance to our program in April, serves as a commitment to the school year program and goes towards the balance of  tuition.
