The Extended Day Program, also referred to as EDP, is operated by the Ipswich Public Schools under the direction of Mrs. Wilma Gooby. This program was created primarily for all families who need quality care for their school-aged children attending Ipswich Public Schools, before or after school, as well as early release Thursdays. The Before and After School Programs are located at both the Doyon and Winthrop School cafeterias. With a $40.00 non-refundable registration fee, you may register your child for the program you select, as long as space is still available. The Extended Day Program follows the school calendar. When school is in session, EDP is operating. During all school vacations, EDP is closed. There is a 10% tuition reduction for two or more children from the same family. YOU AND YOUR CHILD ARE WELCOME TO VISIT OUR SITES, AND SEE THE FUN HAPPENING ALL THE TIME!!!
Before School Program
The Before School component of EDP opens at 7:00 a.m. and operates until the children are dismissed for school and sent to their classrooms at 8:40 a.m. This convenient program allows the parents/guardians to leave for their jobs knowing that their children are in a safe environment and will arrive in school on time. This program is based in the school cafeteria at both the Doyon and Winthrop Schools. The activities are varied in the morning, and may range from board games, chess, checkers, and simple crafts to a quiet time to complete homework or review spelling words. On a two-hour delay, due to inclement weather, EDP is also delayed and will open at 9:00 a.m. and your child can remain in the program until the start of school at 10:40 a.m., provided that your child is scheduled to attend EDP on that day.
After School Program
The After School component of EDP begins with the dismissal after school at 3:00 p.m. and is open until 6:00 p.m. There is a late fee of $5.00 per minute if parents arrive late to meet their children. All ages from K-5 gather in the cafeteria at both the Doyon and Winthrop Schools. A typical afternoon progresses like this: attendance by grade with an assigned teacher for each group, bathroom, wash hands, snack served, outdoor play, crafts, projects, and homework for appropriate classes from grade 2-5. After homework, all students can choose various table games or art projects of the day, as well as free playtime.
Early Release Thursdays
On Early Release Thursdays, school is dismissed at 1:50 p.m. every Thursday for teacher workshops, parent conferences, and meetings. The Extended Day Program provides coverage for registered students from 1:50 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. in the school cafeteria. Children in grades K-5 are eligible for this program. We offer a variety of events to appeal to a wide range of interests. Previous trips have included: roller-skating, mini-golfing, and bowling. Guest visits have included: paper origami instruction, karate lessons, Irish step dancing lessons, tap dance lessons, guitar lessons, leather craft lessons, yoga instruction, water color painting lessons, story-tellers, and animal presentations. All field trips are provided with a school bus. There is always a ratio of 10 children for 1 teacher on the various outings.
