Extended Daycare (EDC)

The St. Louis School Extended Day Care program (EDC) is a before and after school care program licensed in the State of Virginia and approved by the Office of Education in the Catholic Diocese of Arlington. The Extended Day Program provides a safe and enjoyable environment for K-8 students beyond the hours of the normal school day. Our morning EDC program runs from 6:30am-7:45am, and our afternoon program runs from the end of the school day until 6:00pm (Mon-Thur) and 5:00pm (Fri).

The program provides high quality before and after school childcare in a loving and safe and Christian environment. The EDC administrators and dedicated staff members run the program. The students participate in a variety of activities including: outdoor and indoor games, arts and crafts, homework time, quiet time for reading, movies and holiday celebrations. Afternoon snack is provided by the program with a snack calendar posted monthly.

All school policies as outlined in the Parent-Student Handbook apply to Extended Day.
