E-Day: ECS’s Extended Day Program

Welcome to E-Day!

APOSTw_studentsThe value of a high quality after school program can easily be overlooked. It lives in the spaces around the academic day, but for the families E-Day serves, it is invaluable. E-Day is more than childcare. It is a program that engages the whole child by reinforcing both academic growth and social skills, while partnering with parents and educators alike. E-Day does this by providing a safe and welcoming environment where play and learning coexist. We achieve this high quality programming with a team of dedicated professionals with a diverse background in education, specializing in areas such as outdoor education, art, drama, punk and heavy metal music, sustainable farming, literature, poetry, and cooking.

So now you know why your child always asks “Can I go to E-Day?

What is E-Day at ECS?

E-Day, the tuition-based after school program at ECS,  provides a safe and fun environment for students to play, study, and engage while parents finish up their workdays. With programs at both the upper and lower schools, serving students K- 8th grade, E-Day is dedicated to reflecting the school’s mission by following the standards and goals established at ECS. E-Day’s talented and dedicated staff members strive to enrich the program and provide positively memorable experiences for the children through a variety of fun and educational activities.  

As school dismisses and E-Day begins, students transition to after school where they eat snack and socialize. From there, daily activities include outdoor free time and nature hikes, games and puzzles, arts and crafts, cooking and tech time, and a focus on reading. In addition, E-Day offers a daily homework lab to get a head start on nightly assignments. The students also enjoy enrichment programming from community organizations such as the Sierra Club, Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy, and Carnegie Library. One of the favorites by students and parents alike are animal visits, with critters like, skunks, porcupines, and parrots. E-Day wraps up the week with Movie Day, the ever-popular day when students enjoy popcorn and watch age-appropriate films on a big screen. If E-Day can assist your family with after school care, please don’t hesitate and enroll today with your Schoolmint account.
