Enrollment Procedure

Here at ECK, we invite you and your child to come for a visit. If your partner is part of making school choice decisions, please choose a day/time that he/she can attend along with you and your child. We only offer one tour per family, so that we may attend to the needs of our children.

Our tours are short in nature, about 15-20 minutes to meet the teachers and other children, see the facility layout and get a feel for our school. We are able to offer tours by appointment at 9:00am or 3:00pm Tuesday-Friday. We do not tour during a heavy rain day.

Many of your questions will be answered on our website. If you have specific questions, feel free to call us at naptime (12:30 - 2:30) or email us anytime before or after your tour.

Please do have your drivers license with you upon your first visit to ECK. We cannot tour an adult without a child. No exceptions. We cannot tour walk-ins. Tours must be prescheduled.

If you enjoyed your tour, the next step is an optional "playdate” for you and your child here. It will be 30-45 minutes. It must be during our open play time either in the morning or after nap. It must be prescheduled so that we maintain proper teacher to child ratios.

After, we ask that you schedule a Trial Day for your child. The hours are from 8-3 at a reduced rate of $75 cash, at drop off.
During this day, we will give you a detailed account of all aspects of your child’s day typically during naptime by email or text, along with some pictures sent to your cell phone.

If your child had a positive Trial Day, we invite you to start a 30-Day Trail Period, in which we will go week to week, to give time to both your family and us to ensure a good fit for both parties.

Once your child’s Trail Period is over, we officially invite you to enroll at ECK. At that time, you will be asked to sign your contract and give your two-week deposit.
