Extended Day Program (EDP)

St. Joseph Catholic School provides an Extended Day Program (EDP) for children in preschool 4's through eighth grades. This program allows parents who are working or otherwise unavailable after school to have a place for their students to be supervised.  Through this program, each child will have a safe, caring and happy environment provided by our own teachers as staff members.  The children’s time will be divided into snack time, homework and play.  All activities take place in a Christian environment under teacher supervision.

Staff

Our staff consists of professionals in Early Childhood Education with advanced degrees in Curriculum & Instruction, Speech-Language, Special Education, Technology and School Counseling. Each classroom is staffed with both a classroom teacher and full-time instructional assistant, keeping the teacher-student ratio low.

Parental Involvement

At Little Knights we firmly believe that education is a joint venture, with shared responsibility between teachers and parents. We welcome parental involvement and assistance whenever possible. Parents have the opportunity to participate in fun classroom activities such as holiday parties and their child's birthday celebration. Parents are involved in planning and assisting with many special events, such as the Teddy Bear Tea. We strongly believe an open line of communication is essential to the success of our program, therefore we encourage questions and feedback.
