Each Cherry Creek School District elementary school has quality, affordable ECS programs that provide an environment where children can learn, take part in supervised recreation, and build strong, positive relationships with responsible, caring adults and with their peers. ECS programs give parents and guardians the peace of mind and security of knowing that their children are engaged in safe, enrichment and constructive activities. ECS programs strive to provide school-age children with a safe and nurturing environment while promoting physical, emotional and intellectual development.
Activities include, but are not limited to homework assistance, creative expression, science, technology, indoor/outdoor recreational games, health and nutrition, music appreciation, dramatic play, communication skills, cognitive reasoning, building and engineering, fitness and appreciation of diversity. Additionally, these programs offer a variety of activities that promote life skills such as teamwork, problem-solving, creativity, leadership, sportsmanship, and community service.
