Extended Day

About the Program

The Taunton Extended Day Program is a non-profit, self-supporting program which operates under the auspices of the Taunton Public Schools. The program was developed as a result of school community awareness of the need to provide safe, supervised recreation for children of working parents. All elementary and middle school children who attend a Taunton school are welcome to participate, as long as there is space available.
 
The goal of the program is to provide a safe and well-supervised environment that is both educationally enriching and fun. The program makes every effort to provide for individual needs and choices, which builds a happy cohesive group. The curriculum is balanced between outdoor play, academics, and enrichment activities such as art, cooking, and dramatic play.
 
There will be a 2-week wait period prior to starting in the program. The wait period may be longer at the beginning of the school year and the beginning of summer. If you have questions, please call 508.821.1224 or email dross@tauntonschools.org or zchaves@tauntonschools.org.
