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.
