After School Program Testimonials
“Our family is very thankful for Edgewood’s after-school program. Our girls enjoy a safe, dependable, and fun transition at the end of their school day from their classroom to after-school. Our girls love after-school because they get to play with schoolmates that they might not see during the day, as well as having an opportunity to get a jump on their homework. We also have enjoyed the optional programs such as chess and guitar.” Meghan T.
“We are a household of two working parents, and the Edgewood after-school program affords us the ability to see out a full work day while our kids are socially engaged, enriched with numerous activities, and above all, safe. Our kids view being at after-school as a treat. From their vantage point, they get to have more fluid free play, extended interaction with their peer group, quiet time to accomplish homework, and enrichment opportunities throughout the year that are really special: guitar lessons, chess club, science explorers, etc. For us, the parents, there is no pain point around coordinating their care after the school day ends. This program is well attended, well staffed, organized for the entire school year, and is a seamless extension of their day and ours. We highly recommend this wonderful value-add program that Edgewood Campus School has thoughtfully structured.” Bob G. and Sara T.
“We love the after-school program and how it seamlessly integrates with our sons’ experience at ECS. It’s nice that it’s staffed by teachers we are already familiar with. We also appreciate the flexibility to vary their schedule each day to accommodate other activities. The boys love the extended time to play with their friends.” Porter and Carren M.
“The after-school program is a fun and safe child-care option for our working families. After-school is a great way for our students to make friends across grade levels. All students are encouraged to engage in creative play and exercise on our outdoor playground. On bad weather days, the students play indoors with a variety of activity options. Many of our older students use this time to work on homework, both independently or collaboratively with fellow classmates. The after-school program provides children with an equal amount of academic and social skills that helps them thrive inside and outside of the classroom. All students are welcome in our after-school family.” ECS after-school staff member Jessica D.
