Christmas Break: The ELC, as well as all ISU offices are closed for the Christmas break from December 26th - January 2nd.

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.

STAR Rating for the ELC: The ELC has verified at Step 5 in IdahoSTARS "Steps to Quality" quality rating and improvement system for the 2nd year in a row.  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. 

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.

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
