Registration Details

Registration Details

  • ECFE classes are open to all families with children from birth to pre-kindergarten five year olds. Parent(s)/legal guardian(s) must participate with their young child(ren).
  • You may enroll each child in only one 14/15–week morning class per semester. To keep classes safe and comfortable for participants, we do limit the number of families in each class.
  • Assume that you have gotten into class unless you are notified differently. If you pay by credit card online, your card will be charged as soon as your child is enrolled.
  • You may ask to be put on a waiting list if the class you want is full. Class openings do occasionally become available.
  • ECFE welcomes all families, including adults and children with disabilities. All school buildings are handicapped accessible. If special accommodations are needed, please let us know at the time you register.

Payment Information


Our goal is to provide affordable, quality programming for all Spring Lake Park Schools families. Class fees are based on your total family income; see the scale below. Payment for class and sibling care must accompany registration. No Spring Lake Park Schools resident will be turned away because of an inability to pay the listed fees. Class fees may be reduced or waived. All payments will be confidential.


Guaranteed Affordable

Use your gross annual household income to determine the suggested fee for each class. Include the fee amount in the space provided online. Fill out the online form completely and include payment for class and sibling care, if needed. Sorry, no registrations will be processed without the fee.
