How to Enroll

Enrollment Application


Children aged five weeks to five years (pre-kindergarten) are accepted for care on a full-time basis.

  • Full-time care is defined as care that is delivered four or five days per week.
  • EC3 does NOT offer care for the following schedules:
    • fewer than five days per week,
    • just morning care,
    • just afternoon care.

Children are selected for enrollment on a first-come-first-served basis when they submit an application (with the required fee) for vacancies within the appropriate age/development groupings at EC3. Occasionally, when more people wish to enroll than there are spaces for, there is a waiting list organized by date of application and age of child. A random selection process will be used to order names on the waiting list of those children within the same age group who have the same date of application. Selection for enrollment is made as quickly as possible to allow families time to prepare for the transition into EC3.

Don't delay in enrolling - EC3 classrooms are often full! As soon as you know you would like to enroll your child, submit an application to secure your spot. This is especially true for the infant and toddler program. 

EC3 provides equal enrollment, employment, and service opportunities to all eligible persons without regard to race, color, gender, religion, age, disability, sexual orientation, national origin, citizenship, marital status, membership in any labor organization, political affiliation, or any other category protected by federal, state or local law.

The staff are great about introducing parents, especially during the days of service.
