  31. Committee objectives: • Provide an overview of ECDC operations to foster a greater understanding within the Committee, allowing members to share information with their constituent groups. • Provide an avenue for Committee members to express needs from various constituent groups represented. • Serve as a conduit to bring additional considerations (shorter and longer term) to University leadership. Current ECDC Committee

  32. ECDC – ND Background • Early Childhood Development Center is located on east side of campus next to library parking lot • Non-profit organization that is independent of Notre Dame • Daycare for children age 2 through Kindergarten • Licensed by State of Indiana • Accredited by National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) • Notre Dame location established in 1993 • - Agreement with Notre Dame governs operation • - Spirit of original agreement was that the Center be operated in such a way that it would be “…afford{able} to all Notre Dame employees” – resulted in sliding scale tuition structure • (Note there is also Day Care at St Mary’s – established in 1971)

  33. ECDC – ND Cost of Attendance • Operations are cost effective • Largest expense (salaries and benefits) is driven by licensing and accreditation • ND subsidies offset tiered income structure • Tuition rates were compared to other local Centers of similar quality and ECDC – ND tuition rates are comparable for hours of care provided • Nationally, ECDC – ND tuition rates are reasonable compared to other campus-based, accredited programs

  34. Access to ECDC-ND • ECDC - ND open to all Notre Dame faculty, staff and students, alumni, CSC families • Equality of access: • By lottery system - Lottery conducted by Dir. of ECDC • Top priority given equally to Notre Dame faculty, staff and students • Sliding tuition scale • 168 children total with a waitlist that varies from 69-84 in recent years (Currently 113) • Wait lists have been relatively stable; higher this year, but continue, especially for two year old room • (Note: No preferential access for recruiting)

  35. ECDC – ND ECDC Notre Dame Enrollment vs. Waitlisted History

  36. ECDC – ND Future Demand Trends

  37. ECDC – ND Future Expansion Considerations • No current plans underway for expansion; was explored in response to growing demand • Licensing and accreditation requirements • Limit the size of classes • Determine student/teacher ratios • Determine qualifications of staff for facility • Current ages served: • Demand is high at 2-year old level • Demand decreases with age • Demand for kindergarten mostly met with current space due to local kindergarten availability

  38. ECDC – ND Infant vs. Preschool Care • Infant care prohibitively expensive for few spaces: • New facility would not meet projected demand • With facility the size of current ECDC footprint: • Could serve approx. 56 children age infant to 2 • 16 total infants (max of 8 per room) • More need met with facility for ages 2 to pre-K: • With facility the size of current ECDC footprint: • Could serve approx. 100 children age 2 to pre-K • 34 additional slots for 2 and 2/3 groups combined
