Registration is “in-person” and you can either choose to pay in full or arrange a payment plan. You will need to provide checking account or credit card information for automatic payments to guarantee placement. Our ECC Administrative Team carefully determines classroom placements with consideration given to child development, continuity of relationships, and group dynamics. We do not accept placement requests for teachers or friends although families are welcome to contact our team at to share feedback and concerns.

The following must be completed before enrollment:

  • Completed Registration Form (both sides)
  • ECC Family Policies and Procedures agreement form
  • A copy of your child’s birth certificate
  • Payment method for the registration fee, supply fee, and deposit for May tuition

Enrollment Contract

At the time of registration, you will receive an ECC school year enrollment contract that is specific to the options you select on the registration form. Please note that if you withdraw your child from the ECC for any reason, at any time, you are responsible for paying tuition for subsequent months after your child no longer attends our center. The deposit for May is non-refundable and non-transferable.

Process For Registration

1. APPLICATION & FEES - Registration fee + Supply fee and a copy of your child’s birth certificate, along with completed Registration Form and deposit for May 2021 tuition.

2. ACCEPTANCE - You are accepted once you have provided the registration and supply fees, May 2021 tuition, signed contract, a copy of your child’s birth certificate, and any additional required forms.

3. FINAL ENROLLMENT - After review by our ECC Administrative Team, a signed enrollment contract, paid registration and supply fees, a deposit of May 2021 tuition, and birth certificate along with a current JCC Family Membership, are due to reserve placement.

4. ENROLLMENT CHANGE - The JCC will assess a one-time change fee of $150 for program schedule changes made after the contract date that reduces the time spent in programs (e.g., reducing extended care or the number of hours attending school.) Parent/Guardian will not accrue a charge in the event of an increase in enrollment or tuition. The ECC will charge $25 for any other program schedule changes during the year from initial registration. ANY changes to your original enrollment will require the completion of a Change Request Form obtained through
