  • Thoreau Puzzle

    LOCATION CHANGE: For the 2022-2023 school year the AM EDC program for Dentzler Elementary School will be held at Green Valley.

    SNOW DAYSAs stated in the Extended Day Care Parent Handbook, childcare tuition-based budgets are determined using the number of scheduled school days, and there is no adjustment in tuition for snow/calamity days.  We rely on full and timely payments from contracted parents for all scheduled school days. Our goal is to continue to be able to provide childcare for you by maintaining self-sufficiency, as Children's Services staff members are not paid using the district's General Fund. Your cooperation is appreciated.


    Extended Day Child Care is licensed by the Ohio Department of Education. Staff:child ratios of 1:18 are maintained. Children must be capable of functioning safely in the group and within the stated ratio. Because programs are self-supporting, our EDC budget cannot accommodate children in need of lower staff to child ratios, or 1:1 supervision.

    We rely on full and timely tuition payments from parents who contract for child care services. No child care will be provided unless payment for service has been credited to your account.

    EDC ENROLLMENT 2022-2023

    The inquiry Form for the 2022-23 school year is open for new registrations. Click the Inquiry Form link to the right. Once we receive your inquiry, if space is available in your requested program, we will email you a registration link to complete your registration. If space is not available at that time, you will be placed on a waitlist and we will contact you as soon as a spot is available. Child care slots are dependent on space availability at your child's EDC school and assigned on a first come first serve basis.


    Tuition for Extended Day Child Care Services must be pre-paid monthly or bi-monthly by the 15th of the month prior to the service period. A schedule of EDC service periods and due dates will be listed on the Tuition tab of our website. The schedule will also be included with the enrollment information registered parents receive.


    To request a statement of total child care payments made for income-tax purposes, email us at childcareservices@parmacityschools.org. Include your name, your child's name and the school they attend, and we will send your information by return email.


    The EDCC tuition-based budget is determined using the number of scheduled school days. District employees are required to be paid for unanticipated school closings, such as snow days. Therefore, there will be no adjustment in tuition for any unscheduled school closings.
