2023-2024 SCHOOL YEAR ENROLLMENT INFO:
For the 2023-2024 school year, there continues to be higher demand from the community for this type of enrichment program than PUSD has the capacity to enroll. As such, enrollment is now closed. If space becomes available, you will be notified by Jen Roach. In the meantime, we wish your family all the best as you seek alternative before/after school care and enrichment programs for your child(ren). If you have not already done so, we recommend exploring the YMCA's Childcare Resource Service webpage to be referred to other childcare options that may be available in the community.
Due to staffing issues and our Fall Interest List already being so large, we are forced to close the list for now. If you know of anyone who would like a job in ESS please share this link HERE.

Mission Statement - "E.S.S. is a bridge between school and home where children are encouraged to learn, create, and explore within their school, community, and world."
Program Overview - This extended-day program expands the excellence of each child's school experience into before and after school. E.S.S. is staffed by highly qualified professionals and trained program assistants. The staff provides for the academic and social needs of children in safe and nurturing environments. There is time, space, encouragement, and support for learning good study habits.
Program History - The E.S.S. program began in 1980 and is now offered in every elementary school in the Poway Unified School District. All children who attend elementary school in the District are eligible to enroll.
Voluntary Use Program - ESS is a voluntary use program. All PUSD elementary schools have an Extended Student Services program on their campus. Our organization works diligently to accommodate and serve working families in need of before and after school care. A student's enrollment at an elementary school does not guarantee them ESS enrollment. As a growing organization, each ESS site may experience limitations that factor into the enrollment capacity and may prohibit the acceptance of additional students at any given time.
Program Activities - Our program is geared toward expanding each child's world through arts & crafts projects, science activities, reading and language arts reinforcement, and math concept development. Our program reinforces the social, motor, and academic skills children learn in the classroom.
E.S.S. Hours- for the 2023/24 school year: TK 11:45am-6pm and K-5th 2:05pm-6pm M,T,W,F with Thursdays being 12:25-6:00pm. Kindergarten Introductory Days (KID days) have different hours and pricing since the kinders get out of school at 11:45am M-F. Please see our fall Fee Schedule tab for pricing and contract options.
We believe that the children's extended day will be enriched by providing a balanced activity calendar that will support their growth and development. We want to encourage the children to explore their interests, motivate them to achieve their personal best, and relax and have fun with friends.
