1/21-24: Literacy Week Celebrated at the ELC

Spring '20 Enrollment:  Availibility for spring semester is very limited, but we do have a few spaces.  Call Joanne at 282-2769 for more information.

Withdrawal from the ELC:  After the first 5 days of each semester, 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

Fluoride Varnish Clinic:  No appointment is needed for this clinic.  For Pocatello, it's held at 1901 Alvin Ricken Drive from 2-4 PM on the last Monday of each month. See our bulletin board near the front desk for the flyer.  Call April Sluder at 478-6314 for more information.  For December, the clinic will include a visit with Santa as well as holiday crafts and healthy snacks (Sponsored by Parents as Teachers).

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 and a PT bus driver. 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 idahostars.org 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:  http://families.naeyc.org/learning-and-development/child-development/10-things-every-parent-should-know-about-play

WIC services available on campus:  WIC services are available at the University Health Center on the 4th Thursday of each month from 9:00 a.m. until noon.  Go to the second floor.  No appointment is necessary.
