Applying for the ECL, Tuition and Fees

Applications are accepted all year. Enrollment for the next Fall, Winter and Spring quarters begins in late March and is completed by the end of April.

We will keep each application on file until the child is enrolled, reaches kindergarten age, or the parent asks us to withdraw the child's name from the applicant pool. Occasionally an opening will occur at another time of year and a child from the applicant pool will be enrolled then.

Mail this application for the CCFS Early Childhood Lab School program with $40 application fee (check only, made out to "UC Regents"):   ECL Application

Once a child is placed in the program, s/he is automatically enrolled each term thereafter until withdrawn by parents or enrolled in kindergarten.
