ECDC offers full time and part time enrollment schedules in both the preschool and kindergarten classrooms. Regardless of the child’s enrollment schedule, the children enjoy a robust curriculum with art, music, literacy, math and science, free choice playtime both inside and outside, and enrichment opportunities.  ECDC registration takes place during the spring for both the upcoming summer and school year programs.  Registration due dates are:

  • Kindergarten School Year registration – January 15th
  • Summer registration – February 1st
  • Preschool School Year registration – February 15th

Currently enrolled families receive priority in the registration process.  Current family registration is due January 15th.

Registration forms are accepted after the above due dates on a first come first served roll-in basis.

A registration reminder and program information is emailed to families on the mailing list at least one month prior to the registration due dates. If you would like to add your name to the ECDC mailing list to receive registration reminders, please complete this form.
