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-kindergarten 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 activity. The Union Extended Day Program is an extension of the school day and has priority for use of the indoor and outdoor facilities from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Only children enrolled at a Union school, 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 forms are available from the Education Service Center or school sites. Forms must be completed in full in order to ensure proper care of each child.
Fees must be paid monthly. New enrollment during the school year must be taken to the Education Service Center. Enrollments require the first month’s tuition paid in advance. A $25 registration fee is required.
EDP Enrollment is now open using our new EDP software: EZChildTrack Parent Portal!!
This year, all parents will be new to EZChildTack so you will click the Blue “Register” button in the box that says “New Parents Open Account.”
After that point follow the instructions on the screen! Complete all information required and submit at the end.
If you are registering on an IPhone, when asked to login, please click the selection that says “switch to desktop view.”
We will approve your initial registration. However, your enrollment is not complete until you have paid the required fees ($25 registration fee per child/max. $50 per family), August EDP Fees (prorated to ½ month), as well as the September EDP fees. We are not accepting payments in EZChildTrack this semester.
Once you have received an email stating that your EDP application has been approved, then you may make your payment using the Online Payment instruction link below or come to the Education Service Center (8506 E. 61st St.) and pay by check, credit card or cash.
