At Extended Day Child Care (EDCC), we are committed to creating a caring and stimulating environment, supported by well-trained, experienced and competent professionals, who are responsive to your child’s needs. Our staff, parents, and children work together with mutual respect and support to maintain a thriving, well-organized child care and enrichment learning center, which is highly respected, at full enrollment and valued by all.
EDCC child care centers serve children enrolled in Kindergarten through Fifth Grade at schools in Dublin Unified School District and at Walnut Grove Elementary in the Pleasanton Unified School District. EDCC operates year round Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Child care can be a stressful and worrisome item for parents, especially at this time when more safety precautions and operating protocols are in place.
At EDCC our goal is to eliminate that problem for you and work with your concerns for safety and the care of your children. We can assure you that we will love and nurture your child as well as guide him/her through stimulating activities during their hours at the center. All teachers have been trained to provide a safe space for your child while engaging them in activities that expand their intellectual and social well-being.
We understand how important dependable, quality and safe child care is to your family and we will strive to meet your child’s needs during the hours he/she is not in school. Learning does not stop when the school dismissal bell rings or when the schools are closed. EDCC will provide a variety of enrichment activities to enhance your child’s social, physical, and educational growth, as well as offer high standards in safety, care and guidance through these trying times.
Please feel free to contact us to receive a full disclosure of our safety procedures, protocols, and compliance EDCC has with the CDC in moving forward to care safely for our employees and our EDCC children.
