* There is a late charge of $1.00 per minute that you are late past 5:30pm *


The Registration fee of $50.00 per quarter, per family is required to secure a spot in the ECLC. Once the child attends the $50.00 fee is applied to the contract for the quarter. If the child does not enroll or leaves prior to signing the quarterly contract, the fee is non-refundable.


Fees are based on the length of each quarter; starting the first day that the ECLC is open for operations to the last day of finals week. A child must attend at least two days per week, and the days are charged for regardless of whether the child attended or not. There are no exceptions or reimbursements for illness or vacations during the contracted period. The fees are able to be charged to your Financial Aid package and are billed to your CWU ID#. All contracts must be paid in full prior to registering for the next quarter.

The ECLC does not take outside resources for payments such as DSHS, People for People, etc.

There is no family discount for those with more than one child.


Ask Director for more information


Faculty/staff parents that do not need the summer months of early learning, must pay 1/3 of the summer cost to secure their 12 month contract at the ECLC. Exception is for children that are school-aged; those going into Kindergarten or First, Second or Third grades. Faculty/Staff are on 12-month, M-F contracts from September to August, they are able to use half-time or full-time and are able to change their need from quarter to quarter when signing the contract in August for the upcoming year.

Credit Card payments may be paid each quarter 10 days prior to the quarter starting or by setting up a payroll deduction format over the course of the year. (# of deductions is based on amount of contract and # of payroll periods for individual employees)

Those faculty/staff parents not interested in a yearly contract are able to take fewer days on a quarter by quarter basis after students needs have been met first. This option will become available upon the first day of add/drop classes each quarter.


All payments must be current prior to the start of a new quarter starting. If not current, the child is removed from the enrollment and the spot will be filled from the waitlist. Payment accommodations can be made for payment with the director as warranted.


There is a charge of $1.00 per minute/per family after posted closing time at each center.

If using time beyond your scheduled block of five hours, the charge is $1.00 per minute with a cap of $10.00 per day, per child.

For each missing signature or time in/out on the Sign In sheets, there is a charge of $2.00 per child/per infraction.

If your child is out of diapers and uses one from ECLC, the charge is $1.00 per diaper.

All charges mentioned above will be charged to your CWU ID # on a monthly basis, and due by the end of the quarter.


Contracted parents will be charged for “additional days” outside of the contracted days when they are available and the normal cost of the time period used will be applied. Advance approval must be secured for additional days.
