Early Childhood Center

Registration Policy

Our Synagogue’s policy regarding enrollment for the Early Childhood Center’s 2018-2019 school year is set up so that current regular Synagogue members have priority in registering their children from October 15 through October 22.  Regular synagogue members also receive substantial discounts on their children’s Early Childhood Center tuition. (ECC discounts and priority registration doesn’t apply to Gift Members.) The opening dates for registration for the Early Childhood Center are:

1, On October 15th, our priority registration will begin for two groups:

Members: Current Community Synagogue members in good standing may register beginning on October 15th. In order to be eligible, your membership must be received and processed BEFORE noon on Friday, October 11th. Please note that Gift Members are NOT eligible for registration on October 15th.
We will begin to accept registration forms at 8:00 am. The forms will be collected and put into a pile. They will not be processed until 11:00 am. When you drop off your form, you will select a random number from a basket. The number that you choose will represent the order in which your form will be processed. For example, if you choose number 7, your child’s form will be the seventh one that we process.
We feel that this “lottery system” is the fairest way to ensure that everyone has an equal chance of being accepted into the program. As long as you bring in your form between 8:00-11:00 am, you will be included in this lottery system. If you bring in your form after 11:00 am on October 15th, it will not be processed until after all of the forms that were received between 8:00-11:00 am are processed.
Returning Students: All current ECC students in our 2’s & 3’s programs are eligible to register starting on October 15th. Returning students from our current 2’s & 3’s are guaranteed a spot for next year as long as you register during the priority period from October 15th - October 22nd. There is no need to rush on October 15th to get your registration form in for a returning student, but you do need to register before October 23rd to keep your spot.

2. On October 23rd, registration will begin for ECC Alumni families, current Grown Up & Me families, current Synagogue Gift Members, and Grandchildren of Community Synagogue Members who are in good standing. We will not be accepting applications on a first come, first serve basis. Therefore, there is no reason for you to come to school early in the morning to be “first in line.”
We will be using the same procedure that is described above. We feel that this “lottery system” is the fairest way to ensure that everyone has an equal chance of being accepted into our program. As long as you bring in your form between 8:00-11:00 am, you will be included in this lottery system. If you bring in your form after 11:00 am on October 23rd, it will not be processed until after all of the forms that were received between 8:00-11:00 am are processed.

3. Each family will need to submit his or her or own registration form. We will not accept forms that are brought in for you by another ECC parent. If you are not able to submit your own form, please contact the ECC Office.
We understand that this is a lot of information to digest. We are available to speak with you in person or over the phone if you would like to do so.
