EDC (Extended Day Care) for Grade K-8

The Extended Day Care Program at Our Lady of Guadalupe School provides a caring and safe environment before and after the school day. The program includes enrichment activities, crafts, homework time, a snack, games, and physical activity.

For families with early morning work schedules, drop-off begins at 7:30 am, and a simple breakfast is provided. In the afternoon, care is provided until 5:00 pm.  We will follow the schedule for late start in the event of inclement weather.  EDC is staffed by Laura Joe (EDC Director), Walela and Julie

You must pre-register for EDC before beginning to attend on regular school days.  Due to size limitations required for COVID protocols, we do not allow afternoon drop-in use and may have to restrict numbers.  We require sign up for all afternoon dates (see monthly sign up link above) to help plan for COVID protocols and staffing.  Please inform your child and your child’s homeroom teacher of the dates your child is expected to attend afternoon EDC.  For information on EDC’s half/full day schedule, check the monthly sign up link and/or the online parent calendar / recent weekly newsletters.  We will be locating all programs in the Walmesley Center (Gym) at this time.


K-8 EDC drop off and pick up is at the Walmesley Center (gym)
PreS/PreK drop off and pick up is in the ELC classrooms from 34th Ave SW 
To sign up for Preschool/Pre-K before care and after care, contact Janet McClelland, Early Learning Director.  For information on specific half/full days, check with Janet McClelland.


If you find you are unable to pick up your child from school on-time, your child will be escorted to EDC.  For last minute changes to your child’s schedule, here is important contact information:

Monthly Invoices in FACTS (All Grades)

Monthly invoices will be issued by the 25th of the month in your FACTS account reflecting the prior month’s balance.

If payment is not received by the due date, late fees may be assessed.  To avoid late fees, we strongly encourage families to sign up for Auto-Pay for incidental expenses in your FACTS account. Incidental expenses (e.g. EDC, milk, yearbook, etc) are NOT automatically withdrawn from your financial account (like tuition) unless you sign up for Auto-Pay.  You will need to initiate payment on EDC invoices each month or you may incur late fees if not paid by the due date. To enroll in Auto-Pay, log in to your FACTS account, choose the Action button, then Enroll in Auto PayMore about FACTS
