Extended Day Program
EPCS Extended Day Program offers experiences that promote children’s active, hands-on exploration of their environment through observation, discovery and interaction with the world and people around them.
At EPCS we support children’s learning with a play-based curriculum that is organized around children’s interests. Our goal is to encourage children to question, hypothesize, experiment, solve problems and develop critical thinking skills. We want children to be confident in their ability to master new skills and learn new ideas, to understand that success requires effort, to take pride in their accomplishments, and to retain their natural curiosity.
Extended Day runs from 12:30 to 4:00pm Monday thru Friday. Projects and activities are designed to be experiential, hands-on, flexible, and according to the levels of children in the class. Teachers bring their own interests and enthusiasm to design projects that engage children, families and the school community in different ways.
