CACFP:  The ELC takes part in the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP).  The CACFP promotes healthful standards for nutrition and helps providers a bit by reimbursing us for a portion of our food program costs.  Have your children ever commented that they like something served at the ELC?  You can view the recipes that are currently in use by going to www.sde.idaho.gov/cnp/shared/Idaho-CACFP-menu-toolkit-final.pdf

Summer Enrollment:  We do have some spaces available for summer term, but we are filling up.  Call Joanne at 282-2769 for updates.  The ELC is open to the community for enrollment after we have enrolled children of students/employees of ISU.

Fall Enrollment:  We have worked through our waiting list and are now taking walk-in registrations for fall on a space-available basis.

Withdrawal from the ELC:  Remember that you must give 15 days' written notice of withdrawal from the ELC.  You will be billed for your contracted schedule for those two weeks regardless of whether or not your child actually attends.

Fluoride Varnish Clinic:  No appointment is needed for this clinic.  For Bannock County, it's held at 1901 Alvin Ricken Drive from 2:00-4:00 p.m. See our bulletin board near the front desk for clinics in other counties.  Call 478-6314 for more information.

Employment:  The ELC is always looking for great people and accepts applications for part-time employees at any time.  We currently are looking for PT morning child care providers and a PT bus driver.  Call Donna at 282-4347 for more information about PT positions, or come to our front desk and ask for an employment application.  A City of Pocatello child care license is required upon hire, as is current pediatric first aide/CPR certification.

STAR Rating for the ELC:  The Pocatello site was recently verified at Step 4 in IdahoSTARS' "Steps to Quality" quality rating and improvement system.  If you would like to know more about this, go to idahostars.org and look for "Steps to Quality."  We are in Region 6.

ICCP:  If you receive help with child care fees from the ICCP, don't forget that we need a new Monthly Dependent Care Charges (MDCC) form from you each semester and each time you change your schedule.

Children and Play:  The ELC uses a developmentally appropriate, play-based curriculum for infants through preschool-age children.  Here's a good article about the importance of play:  http://families.naeyc.org/learning-and-development/child-development/10-things-every-parent-should-know-about-play

WIC services available on campus:  WIC services are available at the University Health Center on the 4th Thursday of each month from 9:00 a.m. until noon.  Go to the second floor.  No appointment is necessary.
