The CEC offers both full-time and part-time enrollment options. There is a minimum of 2 days a week required for enrollment.

Children need to be 2 1/2 years old (30 months) before they can be enrolled in the CEC.

Families enrolling in the CEC's program will be asked to complete an Enrollment/Tuition Agreement. This agreement asks each family to specify what days and times their child will be at the Center. Billing will be based on the hours specified and will occur on a weekly basis. This model will insure efficient scheduling to staff and having children attend on a regularly scheduled basis.

The CEC continues to provide before and after school care, since it remains a bus stop for the Allendale schools.

Please read the parent handbook for more information about policies regarding enrollment.


An enrollment fee of $25(non-refundable) and a deposit of $100.00(refundable) must accompany the enrollment application for each child.

Discounts are offered for GVSU students, siblings and military families.

Please contact the Children's Enrichment Center for current rates and to make an appointment for a tour.
