Flex Program for Transitional Kinder and Kinder Students

Extended Day now has the Flex program available for TK/K students.


If you choose Flex for your TK/K student, our staff will pick them up from the classroom everyday unless you have notified the Instructor that your child will not be attending Extended Day that day. If your TK/K student comes to Extended Day you will be charged for the time they are in the program.


Extended Day Program, an example of why California ranks #1 in after school programs

A national survey conducted by the Afterschool Alliance has distinguished California as the leading state in after school programs with strong student participation and high program satisfaction among parents. “These programs are helping our children learn and stay safe after school, while helping working parents keep their jobs,” said State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson.

In El Dorado County, students and families benefit from the high-quality services provided by public education and community based child care programs. One example is the El Dorado County Office of Education’s (EDCOE) Charter Extended Day Program, which has provided educationally enriching child care throughout the county since 1984. The Extended Day program represents a unique collaboration with school districts to meet the needs of families, and help students excel by allowing them to continue learning after the bell rings.

Extended Day provides a safe and engaging learning environment before and after school to 2500 students enrolled in El Dorado County public school districts on 23 different school sites, allowing students to go back and forth from school to Extended Day without transportation. Extended Day’s services are also available during school vacations, including a robust summer program.


Extended Day Comes Back to School ‘Funtastically’

Extended Day child care team members from EDCOE were welcomed back from summer break with an “It’s Funtastic!” in-service training day.  The in-service, which is part of a regular professional development model, allowed staff to gain crucial knowledge on a variety of topics designed to ensure that Extended Day continues to provide outstanding service to families in the community. 

 

Guest speakers presented information on different ways to provide fun and engaging program elements for students, and in addition there was training on a variety of other topics, including epi-pen regulations and administration, common medical concerns, the program’s new website, and various personnel information. 

“The day was filled with positive energy, and our team received great training to ensure another successful school year,” Extended Day Program Supervisor Lori Scalaro expressed.

“Extended Day provides educationally enriching child care before, during, and after school on 22 schools sites throughout El Dorado County,” Scalaro added.  “I am proud of our team and their hard work delivering high-quality support and services to our students and families.”
