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.  Have your children ever commented that they like something served at the ELC?  You can view the recipes that are currently in use by going to

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.

Employment:  The ELC is always looking for great people and accepts applications for part-time employees at any time.  We are looking for PT classroom aides, a PT bus driver, and a PT kitchen aide. Call Donna at 282-4347 for more information, or come to our front desk and ask for an employment application.

STAR Rating for the ELC:  The ELC verified at Step 4 in IdahoSTARS' "Steps to Quality" quality rating and improvement system.  If you would like to know more about this, go to and look for "Steps to Quality."  We are in Region 6, and the Idaho Falls site is in Region 7.

ICCP:  If you receive help with child care fees from the ICCP, remember that we need a new Monthly Dependent Care Charges (MDCC) form from you each semester and each time you change your schedule.

Children and Play:  The ELC uses a developmentally appropriate, play-based curriculum for infants through preschool-age children.  Here's a good article about the importance of play:
