Eligibility, Waiting List and Enrollment

ECDC’s center at 2401 E Street, NW provides child care for employees of the Department of State (DOS) and Federal government, with priority going to the DOS community. ECDC is open to children ages 6 weeks to 5 years old, daily from 7:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.  Diplotots also serves children ages 5-10 in the summer.

Enrollment Process

The majority of ECDC’s enrollment happens in the May-August timeframe for spaces that will open at the end of the current school year (June) or the beginning of the new school year (late August or early September).

During the school year, some enrollment spaces become available due to children leaving the program. Those spaces are filled with appropriately aged children.
