We provide a safe, nurturing place for children to attend quality programming beyond the schools’ hours of operation.  We strive to help youth reach their full potential by allowing them to explore their physical, social and intellectual interests in a safe and fun setting.  The culture of our programs emphasizes quality relationships and a healthy respect for individuality.  We provide enough structure to keep everyone safe, but we also offer an open atmosphere that allows children to explore their interests in groups or on their own.

The Before School Program operates on normal school days at the Epping Elementary School gym in the mornings for youth in grades K-6.  The program opens at 6:45 A.M. and runs until students leave for their classrooms at 8:20 A.M.! Kindergarteners are escorted by staff.  At the program the youth are able to finish homework, work on arts and crafts projects & play games in the gym.  The youth are able to eat breakfast with the school breakfast program.

The after school program starts at EES Library to gather, then they head outside to the EES playgrounds during good weather days or walk down to Watson Academy for snack and homework time from 3:15-4:15pm, during cold or bad weather days.  The programs then runs organized games and activities from 4:15-5:45pm at Watson Academy and on scheduled days, uses the gym for PE related programming.   The program operates from school dismissal until 5:45 P.M..  Children are grouped by grades: K-1, 2-3 and 4-7.  This may vary slightly depending on space and child needs in each of the groups.

If your child would like to participate in the school offered programs after school or extra work with a teacher, we do have staff available to pick up the kids at the designated school dismissal areas at the close of these programs. We ask that parents notify us, if their child will be attending one of the school programs and if they will be picking them up from these programs so we can coordinate the pick up schedule daily.

Space fills up fast, so download a registration form today!  We require registration for the Fall Semester and again in December for the Spring!  We offer No School Day, Parent/ Teacher Workshop and Vacation Week full day programs, which will have their own registration forms!  Please check one month in advance of any No School Days on the school calendar or call us at 679-3006, if you have questions.  We will not be offering programs during the Thanksgiving and Winter Break School Closings, to allow our staff time with their families during the holidays, as well as traditionally low enrollment in past years during those times.  Our Before and After School Programs run on the last day of school, but are then closed until the start of our scheduled Summer Camp programming.
