Child Care Payments

Monthly invoices are distributed to the Child Care Centers and placed in the Sign In/Out binder. All communications from Child Care are placed in the clear pocket designated for your student in the Sign In/Out binder.

It is the parents' responsibility to pick up the invoice and make a timely payment. If someone else is picking up your child, you will need to make arrangements to pick up your invoice on the first school day of the month. In order to avoid a $25.00 late fee, you will need to have your payment made by the due date on the invoice.


See Child Care Fees for more information.

Important Information for Your 2016 Taxes:


Newark Unified School District Child Care Office does not send out a separate tax statement to individual families for income tax purposes.  For your 2016 Income Tax Return filing purposes, you only need to provide the school’s Federal Tax ID and total amount of your child care payments.  If for any reason you need printed documentation, the request can be made with the Child Care Office. The turnaround time is up to 10 working days and the cost is $10.

The following is the child care information you need for filing your 2016 income tax:
