MRH ECC Parent Update, May 11, 2020

Maplewood Richmond Heights

Early Childhood Center





Dear Parents,


Kindergarten registration for the 2020-2021 school year is now open for students new to the ECC. As a reminder to all ECC families, registration information for the ECC & Elementary Discover Club program is now available on the district website. The registration window for our before & after care program opens on Monday, May 18th and closes for the initial round of registration on Friday, May 29th. If you miss the initial registration window, Discover Club registration will re-open in mid-June, and if there are no available slots, we will start a waiting list.


Kindergarten Enrollment Information: 2020-21


In this section, you will find information on how to enroll your Kindergarten student into the MRH School District. Please note that these directions are for those students that will be attending MRH for the first time. There is a separate set of instructions and steps for those families transitioning from Preschool to Kdg. Those directions were emailed to the Preschool families in April.


Due to the school closure, we were unable to host our on-site registration event for new Kindergarten students. However, through the combined efforts of ECC and District staff, we have created a new on-line enrollment process. 


Below you will find specific written directions, as well as 2 video tutorials, that will walk you through the enrollment process. We ask that you complete this process as soon as possible since we are working on classroom assignments. In addition, if you need before or after school care, the enrollment process must be complete before we can accept applications for our Discover Club before and after care program. The first window for Discover Club registration begins on Monday, May 18 and closes on Friday, May 29. If you miss the initial registration window, Discover Club registration will re-open in mid-June, and if there are no available slots, we will start a waiting list.


If after reviewing the video tutorials and written directions, you have remaining questions or problems completing this process, feel free to contact Molly Sauer via email: or by phone: 314-644-4405

4.    If the stay at home orders are lifted this summer, and we can conduct limited in-person services, we will invite you and your student to the ECC for a brief school readiness assessment so that we can best be prepared to serve your student. This will also give us an opportunity to learn more about your student and answer any questions you might have. 


Warm Regards,
