2023-2024 Registration Information & Application

Thank you for your interest in our Early Childhood Center. Registration dates are as follows:

Monday, November 14 – Registration opens for returning ECC families with children currently in the 2's or 3's programs, AND for current members of The Community Synagogue who are in good standing.

Monday, November 28 – Registration opens for returning ECC alumni families, Gift Members, Grown Up & Me families and grandchildren of current temple members who are in good standing.

Monday, December 5 – Registration opens to the community.

Registration on all three dates will be in person, using a lottery system. It will NOT be done on a first come, first serve basis, therefore, there is no need to arrive earlier than 8am on registration dates.

We will begin accepting registration forms at 8:00 am. At the time your form is received, you will select a lottery number from a jar. 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 obtaining a spot in the program.

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.


2023 – 2024 Registration Form

Please print the registration form and submit it with your payment on the appropriate registration date.

On November 14, our priority registration will begin for the following two groups:

Returning Students: All current ECC students in our 2's & 3's programs in good standing are eligible to register starting on November 14. Returning students from our current 2's & 3's program are guaranteed a spot for next year as long as you register during the priority registration period from November 14 — November 22 (the ECC is closed November 23-25). If you plan on enrolling for next year, we ask that you register by November 22 to secure a spot.

Members: Current Community Synagogue members in good standing may register beginning on November 14. In order to be eligible, your membership must be received and processed BEFORE noon on Thursday, November 10. Please note that Gift Members are NOT eligible for registration on November 14.

On November 28, registration will begin for ECC alumni families, Gift Members, Grown Up & Me families, and grandchildren of current synagogue members who are in good standing.

On December 5, registration will open to the community.


ECC Summer Camp Program

For the first time ever, we will be offering a Bundle & Save incentive for those families wishing to enroll in our Camp program at the same time as ECC registration. Families who wish to take advantage of this offer will receive an additional 10% discount off of camp tuition, deducted off of the final payment for camp. Registration forms for both camp and school must be handed in together when you register.

Bundle & Save Registration Form

Families who do not wish to "Bundle & Save" will have the opportunity to register for our ECC Summer Camp Program in January 2023.

Camp Hours: 2's (5 days)  9:20am – 12:20pm
  3's/4's (5 days)  9:00am – 1:00pm OR 9:00am – 2:00pm (pending group minimums are met)
