Located in Chevy Chase, DC, we are walking distance from Lafayette Elementary School. Enrolled students will be picked up daily after school from Lafayette Elementary School and walk to our campus with our caring staff. Meet our staff. Our program could use some additional supplies. If you would like to help, our Amazon wish list is available.
All families from the community are welcome to apply for enrollment. We currently enroll children in Pre-K to 5th grade .
ECC staff members will be at Lafayette by 3:00 p.m. each day to greet the children. ASEP Staff will take attendance to account for each student before walking back to ECC. All staff and children will abide by pedestrian safety rules, and use of cross walks. Once children arrive at ECC an email will be sent to families to inform them that their child/children have arrived safely.
*Please make sure that children are dressed properly in the event of rain, snow or cold weather.
Our instructors will help your children with their homework and also offer instruction in fun learning activities, including art, music, and nature. Foozball, pingping and pool are available in our recreation area. Outdoor play and sports (in our renovated gymnasium) will also be part of our program.
All Students: Will receive a snack when they arrive on campus. ECC is a nut-free facility.
Grades Pre-K - Grade 1: Following snack time, children will engage in storytime and indoor/outdoor play.
Grades 2-5: Homework time of up to 30 minutes will be set aside after transition/snack time for students who have homework. If students don’t have homework they will read quietly until homework time is over.
