Thank you for your continued patience with us while we navigate these difficult times. We will be preparing to start registration before the tentative in-person school start date of November 6th. We anticipate communication in early fall. We will post to this webpage to notify parents of any planned registration dates prior to the link being posted.

*** Key Fobs ***

If you have a key fob and are not planning to return this year, please see the information below on how to return your key fob:

  • There will be a Key Fob Return box located outside of the Addams ECC Door, located at 2222 W. Webster Dr. The box will be out from 8:30 am - 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday except on Labor Day Weekend. You can also drop the fobs off in the office.
  • Key fobs will need to be placed into an envelope and labeled with the student name, parent name and school name. Envelopes should be sealed with tape and not licked closed. Any envelope will work. If you do not have an envelope you can fold up some paper and tape it closed. 
  • Key fobs cannot be mailed.

This will be an electronic process and the sign up link will be posted on the Early Childhood Center Website Page under Young Oaks Latchkey.  Families will be able to put names onto an initial waitlist. Names will be pulled from the waitlist to available slots on a first come, first served basis. Please note all required forms are linked at the bottom of this page.
