Extended Day Child Care

  • Snack at Thoreau Park EDC



    Extended Day Child Care services are not available when schools are closed. Parent EDC accounts have been charged only for contracted child care services through Friday, March 13, 2020.

    If you have previously paid for any EDC service between March 16, 2020 and April 3, 2020, those tuition overpayments will be applied as a credit to your EDC account.

    At this time, refunds are not being issued since schools are expected to reopen on Monday, April 6, 2020. Should the date for reopening change, we will revisit the situation.



    Effective August 2020, 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, except for the August payment which will be due August 3rd. A schedule of EDC service periods and due dates is listed on the Tuition Changes for 2020-2021 tab of our website. The schedule will also be included with the enrollment information registered parents receive.

    The Parma City Schools Department of Children’s Services relies heavily on full and timely payments from all parents who contract for child care. We thank you for keeping your EDC account current.


    Tax Information:  

    All tax information requests received as of March 16, 2020  will be processed on March 30, 2020.

    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 District'sTax Exempt Number is 34-6002163.


    Snow Days

    As stated in your Extended Day Care Parent Handbook, since childcare 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 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.
