The Before/After School Program provides a well-staffed, fully-equipped child development program that strives to create an environment which will enrich each child’s physical, social, emotional, and intellectual development by providing a secure, caring, and stimulating program.

After School is open from 12:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. according to the school calendar. Our programs offer a fun, creative, and active environment for the students of Episcopal Day School. We offer different scheduling options for all of our students in order to fit the needs of the parents in our school community.

Classes are divided based on grade and enrollment. Typical class breakdowns are as follows, Young 3s and 3s Gingerbread, PK Gingerbread, Young 3s and 3s Napping Lunch Bunch, PK Non-Napping Lunch Bunch, Kindergarten After School, Grades 1-2 After School, Grades 3-4 After School, Middle School After School. The class breakdowns are subject to change with enrollment.
