Extended Day Child Care Registration Information

  • Extended Day Care

    Who We Are
    The Parma City Schools child care programs are tuition-based programs sponsored by the Parma Board of Education.   The programs are designed to provide before and after school child care for children enrolled in kindergarten through seventh grade in the Parma City Schools.  Each of our sites follows the policies and procedures outlined throughout this website.  However, each site may operate differently due to requirements unique to the building in which they are housed.
    Extended Day Child Care programs are licensed and inspected by the Ohio Department of Education, and follow School Age Child Care licensing rules. For specific information about Extended Day Child Care, click on the EDC Parent Handbook link.
    Snow Days

    As stated in your Extended Day Child Care Parent Handbook, since child care tuition-based budgets are determined using the number of scheduled school days, 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 child care 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.
