Extended Day Child Care

  • Thoreau Puzzle

    The Extended Day Child Care office will close for the summer on Tuesday, June 18, 2024. The office will reopen on Tuesday, August 6, 2024. 
    The Inquiry Form for the 2024-2025 school year is now closed but will open again on Monday, August 5, 2024. If you need child care, please complete the Inquiry Form at that time, and you will be contacted if space 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. If space is not available at that time, you will be placed on a wait list. We will contact you as soon as a space becomes available.   
    EDC locations: The following elementary schools will have before and after school EDC at their locations: Dentzler, Green Valley, John Muir, Pleasant Valley, Ridge-Brook and Thoreau Park. Operation of elementary school programs and/or on-site locations is contingent upon enrollment and staffing.
    Middle School EDC will be for 5th and 6th grade students only at Greenbriar and Shiloh. Greenbriar students will be bused directly after school to Shiloh for EDC. There is no EDC available for middle school students at Hillside. Operation of middle school programs and/or on-site locations is contingent upon enrollment.  

    SNOW/CALAMITY 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.

    PAYMENT POLICY FOR CHILD CARE SERVICE: 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.

    TAX INFORMATION: Statement of total child care costs for tax purposes is sent to families by email in January. You can also access this information at anytime by logging into your account at MyProcare.com.
