• Extended School Care Program

    Philosophy

    The goal of the North Penn Extended School Care (NPESC) Program is to provide an affordable before and after school program for elementary age students, in a safe environment, in which students’ social, emotional and physical development is enhanced through fun, creative and challenging quality activities as a natural extension of the students’ day.

     

    NPESC Belief Statements
    The North Penn Extended School Care Program is centered upon the belief that:

    • an extended school care program should incorporate specific program objectives that complement and enhance the school program,
    • program activities should be safe, engaging and age-appropriate and should strengthen problem-solving and critical thinking skills.
