    Late fees will be charged beginning at 6:01 at a rate of $15.00 per child for every 15 minutes you are late. Three late pick ups will result in dismissal from the program.

    CHANGE IN ATTENDANCE:  As stated in our parent handbook, if your child has a change in their afternoon schedule and will not be attending EDEP, please contact EDEP directly by email by 2 pm.  Failure to notify EDEP staff of your child's absence 3 times, will result in dismissal from the program. Thank you for your help with this matter.  Our #1 priority is making sure your child is kept safe.

    *PAYMENT POLICY:* Payments are due in ADVANCE every Friday. You may pay the account as far in advance as you'd like. Payments may be paid by debit or credit card through Procare.  Payments can also be made with cash, check or money order.  Please make checks payable to EDEP and include your phone number and child’s name on the check.


  • Homework time is scheduled each day with the exception of Fridays. It is very difficult to determine when some children have homework. Therefore, you may wish to discuss with your child the procedure you would like to be observed concerning homework.  The EDEP staff is available to answer questions during this time. However, one-on-one tutoring is not available. Please encourage your child to work on homework during the scheduled time. Ultimately, it is the responsibility of the parent to check homework for completion and accuracy.  If you have questions or concerns about your child’s homework please feel free to speak to Ms. Christie.
