Extended School Care

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.

 

Policy Statement

Admissions, the provision of services and referrals of clients shall be made without regard to race, color, religious creed, disability, ancestry, nation of origin (including limited English proficiency), age or sex.

Program services shall be made accessible to eligible persons with disabilities through the most practical and economically feasible methods available. These methods include, but are not limited to, equipment redesign, the provision of aides and the use of alternative service delivery locations. Structural modifications shall be considered only as a last resort among available methods.
