ECM Registration for the 2021-2022 School Year

Do you need full-day care for a child who is 2 or older? Are you looking for safe after school care for your elementary student? At our ECM, we offer quality care in a Christian environment for children ages 2-6th grade. If you have any questions about our ECM or would like to visit our facility, please call 910-738-6608 or 910-739-4336.

Note: If you are in need of immediate care, we have a very limited number of spaces available. Please contact us!

Registration for the 2021-2022 Year will begin:

  • February 8 through February 19  — Registration for currently-enrolled families of preschool-age children (2,3,4 year olds only),
  • February 22 — Registration for FBC members not currently enrolled,
  • February 23 until spaces are filled — Registration opens to the public,
  • TO BE ANNOUNCED — Registration for School-age children.

The 2021-2022 year begins in August 2021, typically the first day of school for PSRC.

As you prepare to register your child for another year, please review the ECM’s Handbook. An electronic version may be viewed here:
Spring 2021 ECM Handbook PDF

The Online Registration link will open at 9:00 am on Tuesday, February 23rd for new applicants.
 Once you complete the online form, you will need to pay a $75.00 registration fee during payment collection (Tuesday or Friday, 7-9 am). Please make a note on your payment that it is for the Registration fee. Your child will be considered registered for the year once both the registration form AND the registration fee has been received.

Your account must be in good-standing in order to register another year. (All past due fees must be paid in full before registering.) Registration is subject to Administrator approval.

2.) Pay the registration fee ($75.00 for each child) during morning payment collection time in the ECM drive on Tuesdays or Fridays from 7:00 to 9:00 am. Please utilize the drive-thru system since you will not be permitted to enter the building. Payments cannot be accepted on other days or other times. Applications are not accepted incomplete or without a paid registration fee. Registration fees are non-refundable and non-transferrable.

3.) Complete an Emergency Card and Transportation Emergency Card. These are not available online, so we will provide these for you to complete.

4.) New Enrollments: Submit a Medical Report and Immunization Record within 14 days of child’s first day.

Other information needed to process your child’s application will be requested as necessary.

Note: As we do have limited enrollment, filling out the paperwork does not guarantee a spot for your child. We will inform you if we have space for your child or if we need to place him/her on our waiting list. We encourage you to register early!

Children must be two years old before they may start. If your child will not be two years old by August 31, 2021, we will place you on a waiting list to register after his or her birthday.
