Extended Day Program (EDP)

The Groveport Madison Schools' Extended Day Program (before and after school childcare) is available to all K-5 students. Programs are centrally-located at Glendening ES, Madison ES and Sedalia ES.
The Extended Day Program (EDP) is a before and after school childcare program for children in grades K-5, who reside in the Groveport Madison Schools. Our goal is to provide affordable, quality childcare that instills a sense of pride for both school and community. Transportation is provided to and from the program to the school.

The Program
The morning program begins at 7 A.M. and lasts until school starts. The afternoon program begins directly after school and ends at 6 P.M. The Extended Day Program follows the school district calendar; therefore, when school is not in session, Extended Day will be closed, as well. 

Each site is staffed with a site director and one or more assistants, with adult/child ratio not to exceed 1 to 18. The program provides age appropriate games, arts and crafts activities and many special events. An area for homework is offered. Outside time, supervised by staff, is encouraged, weather permitting. The staff at our Extended Day Program takes great pride in providing a safe and caring atmosphere in which children enjoy a variety of activities.

Extended Day Program Goals
  • To provide a developmentally appropriate "play" and "success" oriented curriculum which compliments the home and school by encouraging physical, social, emotional and intellectual growth and positive feelings of self-worth;
  • To provide a warm, secure environment designed to encourage decision-making, problem-solving, individual expression and freedom within limits, where children can respect and enjoy each other;
  • To provide competent and caring professional staff who understand and meet the needs of the children;
  • To provide frequent and open communication with parents which provides support and encourages involvement.
