About our Program
The Temple City Unified School District Extended Learning Program (formally Quality Care) is a self-supporting program designed to provide an enriching extension to your child’s school day.
The program is part of Temple City Unified School District and has been in operation since 1992. Eligible children must be enrolled in one of the District's elementary schools or Oak Middle School. It is the intent of the Program to provide for the needs of children by offering an environment that is academically stimulating and fun. We provide programs that are specifically designed with school-age children in mind. Activities promote the social, emotional, cognitive, linguistic and physical development of each child.
Program staff are TCUSD employees certified in CPR/First Aid.
The Extended Learning Program provides on-site classrooms at La Rosa, Emperor, Longden, and Cloverly Elementary School. Nutritious snacks are served each day and each child receives academic assistance with homework. Tutors from the high school provide additional homework support for students.
Oak Avenue's program is designed to support the middle school student with activities that challenge their cognitive, linguistic, and physical development. Students at Oak have the opportunity to engage in social activities that promote teamwork. Students participate in tournaments each week working together to establish constructive strategies.
During the summer months we offer a fun-filled camp. Tuition includes field trips, snacks, academic packets, music, art, and physical fitness. Full and part time rates are available.
Comments from ELP Parents and Families
From parent, M.Y.
"Miss Reed and Miss C always give my child positive comments and he is very happy when I pick him up. His homework is always done and I feel safe. I am glad my child is in ELP! Thank you."
From parent, L.T.
"I would love to take a moment to say thank you for all the ELP staff that take care of the kids at La Rosa and Cloverly during the Before and afternoon cares. For those of us that drop off the kids for before-afterschool care. We appreciate the staffs are always ready right at 6:45 a.m. (if not before). This is extremely appreciated for parents that have an early morning work schedule. We know we can always count on them consistently to take care of the kids when we are rushing at work."
