FAQs for the 2021/2022 School Year
Please register online and pay your deposit by February 5th. If necessary, a lottery will take place the week of 2/8. Confirmation of enrollment will be by 2/12 via email. Registration is NOT first come, first serve. Priority will be given in the following order:
- Clergy or Staff Member
- Temple Members of 2 or more years enrolled during 2020-2021*
- All other Temple Members enrolled during 2020-2021*
- Temple Members not enrolled during 2020-2021
- Non-members enrolled during 2020-2021*
- Non-members previously enrolled in the ECE
- Non-members new to the ECE
* includes those who enrolled their child for 2020-21, but did not get a spot due to lottery.
All deposits are non-refundable. If you do not get a spot, your deposit will be returned.
Classes will have no more than 15 children (most will have fewer). If we need to keep segregated class pods due to Covid restrictions, we will still be in compliance with all guidelines.
We have extended the calendar by one week. Pricing has been adjusted accordingly. It is our intention to offer optional “vacation day” programming for ages 2 and up, should state regulations allow. Those days are denoted in blue on the school calendar. An additional fee will apply.
Infant and Toddler classes are from 8am-6pm. We will be running early and late hours for Ages 2 and up. If restrictions prohibit us from blending classes, we will need a minimum of 5 children in Pre-K and Kindergarten to run those extended hours. Early and Late hours WILL run for 2 and 3 year olds regardless of number of children enrolled.
All class times are approximate and assume that we will not need to take individual temperatures. We may need to adjust start/end times for temperature/carpool lines to stagger arrivals slightly, should we still be required to take temperatures.
Teacher and class placement decisions are completed in August.
If necessary, we will follow any NJ DCF, DOH and CDC guidelines for operating child care during COVID-19. Our current Family handbook details our current policies and procedures.
