2017-2018 School Year 

The following are dates that the ECC is OPEN, but the Mechanicsburg Area School District's kindergarten classes are not in session. If your child attends the ECC on these days, please be sure to include the required additional payment ($20/day) with your weekly tuition, as stated in your parent agreement. Additional payment is also expected on days the public school is closed due to weather-related (or other) emergencies and your child is in our care during regular public kindergarten hours. The additional payment required for early dismissal days is $13/day. The additional tuition expense is used to pay for the additional staff hours required to provide this care. If your child does not attend the ECC on the days listed below, only the contracted weekly tuition amount is due.

We ask that you notify the ECC office in advance of these days in writing, at least two days in advance, to let us know if your child will be here for those full days, so that the appropriate number of staff members is in place during those hours. Forms will be provided to use for that purpose. Thank you for your cooperation. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact the ECC office at 697-0184 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Thank you.

*Your kindergarten child may come to the ECC on days when the public school has a two hour delay; the school district bus will pick them up here at @ 9 AM. Please notify us by 8 AM if your child will be coming, so that we can let the district know to make a bus stop here. There is no additional tuition charge.
