Registration & Tuition

Our registration process is quick, easy, and fast. To start:

  • Bring the registration form and the $60 fee to the office for processing. At that time, you will be given an enrollment packet to complete.  Included in the packet will be a physical form to be completed by your child’s physician.  We will discuss the fees that will apply for your child’s schedule and a start date.
  • Return the enrollment packet to the office so we may prepare for your family to join the school and answer any questions you may have.
  • Your child(ren) begin attending.
Tours are encouraged for you and your child. It gives you an opportunity to see our classrooms and meet our teachers first hand and gives your child a chance to look around at their new space, as well.

Call the school office at 215-945-3131 and arrange for a mutually convenient time. We prefer to do tours individually so you can get information and ask questions that are relevant for your family. You may also email us at ecds@verizon.net to make these arrangements. We generally are available for tours every week day from 7:30 am to 5:00 pm.

We would love to show you our school!
