ALL families, both returning and new will need to use the new registration link. 

The following enrollment forms are mandatory and required by Community Care Licensing (CCLD), Department of Social Services. Licensed programs must remain compliant with CCLD at all times. Even our returning students must have updated enrollment files. We thank you for your patience in completing this paperwork!    

All forms must be complete, submitted, and approved by the ECDC office prior to the child's first day of school.   Return original documents with original signatures in blue or black ink to the ECDC office at Ashley Falls ECDC Office.   Please note, as of January 1, 2016 - all children attending public programs must have current and updated vaccines to attend.  No Shots, No School!
As a reminder, state and district policy states children entering kindergarten must be five years of age by September 1st. ECDC aligns with this requirement.
