Extended Day & Enrichments

Auxiliary programming at EDS consists of Extended Day, enrichment classes, and summer camps.  These programs are designed specifically for children in preschool through eighth grade, and are continually evolving based on family needs and student interest.

The Extended Day 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.

Typical class breakdowns are as follows, Young 3s and 3s Gingerbread, Young 3s and 3s Napping Lunch Bunch, PK Extended Day, Kindergarten Extended Day, Grades 1-2 Extended Day, Grades 3-4 Extended Day, Middle School Extended Day.
