The Union Extended Day Program (EDP) was created to provide safe, alternative educational child care, enhancing the child’s extended day for students enrolled in Rosa Parks Early Childhood Education Center and Pre-K through seventh grade. Recognizing the busy lifestyles of today’s family, the district attempts to work in partnership with home and parents by providing before and after school supervision at the school site. Plus, it's a lot of fun!
Children participating in the EDP program are provided the opportunity for activities and quiet time. Afternoon sessions include a snack and a short period of free time before a study hall and other structured activities. The Union Extended Day Program is an extension of the school day and has priority for use of the indoor and outdoor facilities from 6:45 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Only children enrolled for in-person classes at Union schools, grades prekindergarten through seventh grade as well as the Rosa Parks Early Childhood Education Center, may participate in the program. A child may enroll in the before-school session, the after-school session, or both.
Enrollment is required EACH YEAR FOR ALL STUDENTS! Enrollment must be completed online. Utilizing a credit card payment through EZChildTrack will be the quickest way to complete the enrollment process and be approved to attend EDP. We will close enrollment at each individual site once the site's capacity is filled and you will be put on a waiting list. You must notify your EDP site if any of your emergency information changes – especially phone numbers – to help guarantee your child’s safety.
Fees must be paid monthly and are due on the 15th of the preceding month. Enrollment requires the first month’s tuition paid in advance. A $25 non-refundable registration fee is required per child. (Maximum of $50 per family.)
We look forward to serving you!
6:45 a.m. until school starts and after school until 6 p.m. at all schools.
