General Information


Thank you for your interest in the Eclectic Child Development Program. We look forward to meeting with you. It is our mission to provide a safe and caring environment that focuses on developmental learning and enrichment for all children.

The Eclectic Child Development Program servers children age 2 (potty trained) to age 12. We are a year around program and our hours of operation are 7 am to 6 pm, Monday through Friday. Preschool tuition is $90 per week and after school tuition is $50 per week. Summer tuition is $90 per week unless choosing the once a month payment, in that case it is $85 per week due in full on the first Monday of the month. Tuition is due regardless of attendance.

Our two & three year olds use the Easy Breezy Preschool learning program. Our four year old preschool curriculum is School Board approved. The Scotts Foresman Reading Program is the reading curriculum for all Elmore County students from preschool through the 6th grade. We now offer all of our preschool students the Waterford Early Learning program, which is a computer based program. You may learn more about these programs at the following websites:


The After School program is designed to help children relax after a hard day of learning. We offer homework time and will aide in homework. We have fun games and crafts planned and we enjoy time out on the playground. We work closely with the Elmore County Extensions office and the 4H Program. We also utilize the outdoor classroom that is on our campus. We have various gardens, Butterfly, Peter Rabbit and raised beds, and a woodland walking trail.

Our summer program is more like camp. It is filled with fun and educational themes. Our after school children take weekly field trips in the summer.

To enroll your child you will need to fill out the registration form and return it to the center along with a check or money order in the amount of $30.00 for the yearly registration fee.
