WELCOME TO THE POCATELLO ELC NEWS PAGE  

Fall Semester: Fall semester begins August 23rd. Registration begins April 18th 2022 and priority for open spaces is given to student parents enrolled at ISU taking at least 6 credits.

STAR Rating for the ELC: The ELC is now verified at Step 5 in IdahoSTARS "Steps to Quality" quality rating and improvement system.  If you would like to know more about this, go to idahostars.org and look for "Steps to Quality."  We are in Region 6.

Idaho Child Care Program (ICCP):  The ICCP provides child care assistance to working families and to those in a qualified training or education program by paying for a portion of child care.  In response to the Covid-19 Pandemic, the income limits for the ICCP are increasing so that more Idaho families will be eligible for benefits.  For more information, visit their website at healthandwelfare.idaho.gov or call 1-877-456-1233 to learn about ICCP and how to apply. If you do receive help with child care fees from the ICCP, we need a new Child Care Provider Form (CCP) from you any time you change your schedule. 

Fluoride Varnish Clinic:  These are free and are held at Southeast Idaho Public Health on Alvin Ricken Drive.  Call 208-478-6314 to make an appointment or for more information.

Questions About Your Child's Development? Screenings are available for children ages birth to 3 years old through the Idaho Infant Toddler Program at no charge for eligible children/families.  Children will be screened for physical coordination, self-help, social skills, learning, and speech/language (also for hearing and vision if needed).  To discuss program options, call Hollie Gneiting at 208-904-0861.

Withdrawal from the ELC:  Remember that you must give 15 days' written notice of withdrawal from the ELC.  You WILL BE BILLED for your contracted schedule for those two weeks regardless of whether or not your child actually attends.

CACFP:  The ELC takes part in the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP).  The CACFP promotes healthful standards for nutrition and helps providers a bit by reimbursing us for a portion of our food program costs.  To learn more, go to www.sde.idaho.gov/cnp/cacfp

Employment:  The ELC is always looking for great people and accepts applications for part-time employees at any time. Call 208-282-2769 and leave a message or email us at elc@isu.edu.   We are also looking for at least one Lead Provider for a classroom, which is posted under Classified positions on ISU's Jobs page.
