University affiliated families who wish to enroll their child in our program may add their name to our wait list as early as possible (please note: must be a benefits eligible faculty/staff member or a matriculated student to be eligible for enrollment at the EECCC). There is a 2+ years wait for most programs, so we encourage families to look into a number of child care options within the community. We offer spaces to wait-listed families based on the date they are added to the list, upcoming openings in their child’s age group, and a one-third affiliation split across enrollment.
EECCC is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. during the academic year, and Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the summer. SU-affiliated families enroll for a full academic year of care and have the option of enrolling in one, both or neither of the summer sessions. We also offer optional weeks during which families can decide to opt out of care for the week and pay no tuition. These weeks are in keeping with Syracuse University’s academic schedule.
