Lower School Extended Day Care & Enrichment

Extended Day Care

Our Extended Day Care (EDC) program provides supervised extended play before and after school. We offer this program as a convenience for working parents, but it also provides the opportunity for any student to benefit from and enjoy unstructured play with peers before and after school.

While monitoring the play areas, supervisors try to ensure fairness as well as protect the well-being and self-esteem of every student. EDC is available from 7:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. to all Lower School families free of charge. If you have questions regarding Extended Day Care, please contact Garrett Crosby.

EDC Safety

Early morning and after-school care will be provided for our working families, following the same safety protocols present within the school day.
