ECDC 2022 SUMMER TUITION and TUITION POLICY

ECDC Summer Tuition and Fees

  • ECDC is primarily funded by parent tuition. Both ECDC-SMC and ECDC-ND accept Child Care Voucher (a financial assistance program for families with financial need) from qualifying families.
  • ECDC-ND tuition is an income based tuition schedule. ND and SMC faculty, staff and students are eligible to participate in the income based tuition schedule. ND and SMC alums are not eligible for the income-based tuition and pay full tuition.
  • ECDC-SMC tuition is flat rate tuition that is lower than the market rate for early care and education programs.

Summer Tuition is billed for the full summer.

ECDC Summer Tuition is billed for the full summer program. Please note – parents are not invoiced for July 4th when ECDC is closed. Parents may pay for the full summer on the first day of the program or may elect to pay their tuition as follows:
  • 2 Payments – Divide the tuition into 2 equal amounts, remitting 2 equal payments on the first day of the summer program and July 5.
  • 4 Payments – Divide the summer tuition into 4 equal amounts remitting equal payments every other week beginning with the first day of the summer program. 
  • Weekly Payments – Tuition may be paid on a weekly basis; please call the ECDC office to arrange weekly payments. ECDC tuition must be paid in advance.
Student Activity Fees: The summer program includes a student activity fee – $150 for all full time summer enrollment schedules and for all school-age schedules (Full Time/MWF All Day/TTH All Day); there is a $100 summer student activity fee for all part time summer preschool enrollment schedules.
 
Parents may, from time to time, have difficulty making monthly tuition payments due to unforeseen financial circumstances. If a parent(s) finds that he/she is unable to remit monthly tuition payments when due, the parent(s) must promptly notify ECDC’s Executive Director so that an agreement for the payment of past due tuition can be arranged. Failure to notify ECDC’s Executive Director or to comply with the payment agreement within one month of the date a tuition payment was due will jeopardize a child’s continued enrollment at ECDC. Please note: ECDC is an Indiana Nonprofit Corporation completely separate from the University of Notre Dame and Saint Mary’s College. ECDC is dependent upon tuition to meet financial obligations (e.g., payroll, food costs).
 
Please call the ECDC office should you have tuition questions (ECDC-ND 574-631-3344 or ECDC-SMC 574-284-4693).
