The Charter Extended Day program was developed in 1984 to respond to the working parents’ need for quality child care. Located on school campuses, Extended Day provides child care before, during, and after school, as well as school vacations or intersession times with sufficient interest. The programs allow children to go back and forth from school to child care without transportation by the parent. While in this safe, supervised environment, children participate in a variety of educationally enriched activities. School districts in El Dorado County request and host Extended Day programs.

Mission Statement

The Charter Extended Day Program provides safe, high quality, and affordable childcare to students in grades K-8, enrolled in and attending an El Dorado County public school. We cultivate the creative and intellectual promise of each child by offering enhanced educational opportunities in a structured setting where fun and learning go hand-in-hand.
