Our Lady of the Assumption Catholic School offers the Extended Care Program (ECP) afterschool services to the students of OLA. Students may attend the program on a regular basis, for occasional emergencies, or during a late carpool pick-up situation. Any student not picked up by the end of regular carpool will be checked into ECP.

After spending the day in the structured classroom environment, students at ECP have the opportunity to play freely and creatively within reasonable bounds. Children are given opportunities to enjoy active, sports‐related play as well as quiet activities, including supervised homework, reading, art, board games, construction, and social time.

The OLA ECP program strives to reinforce the basic Catholic values our families seek in their home, school, and church environments. The personal, individual care the staff members give the children helps to foster a sense of mutual respect, self-esteem, social responsibility, and safety.

The program offers children attention, support, care, and discipline in a loving, nurturing manner. Interaction of children of all ages (when appropriate)  fosters a sense of community, encourages independent thinking, involves problem solving, and teaches compromise, team cooperation, and fair play.
