BSS Extended Day Program (EDP)
Blessed Sacrament’s Extended Day Program was established in 1986 in response to the growing need of parents to find safe and supervised after-school care for their children. The program has grown with each passing year, and presently we offer not only after-school care, but also before-school care.
The mission of the Extended Day Program is to instill Christian values and ideals in our families, school, and parish community. It is our hope that with the cooperation and support from our families, Blessed Sacrament School’s faculty and staff, and staff of the Extended Day Program, we will have a program which benefits all, especially our children.
- Provide supervision for students in a loving and relaxed environment where children’s physical and emotional needs are met.
- Provide an environment where children will develop an enthusiasm for learning, exploring, and creativity.
- Establish an atmosphere of respect for others and self in compliance with the rules and regulations of Blessed Sacrament School, the Diocese of Savannah, and the Department of Human Resources for Child Care Providers.
- Meet or exceed all applicable standards required by the State of Georgia.
The Extended Day Program begins each afternoon with a nourishing snack. Homework time is a part of the daily schedule for 1st – 8th grade. Students rotate every :45 minutes through stations of organized games, crafts, and free play. EDP uses a variety of facilities such as the lecture hall, classrooms, cafeteria, Daffin Park, and the school playground. We are fortunate to have a new, state of the art gymnasium for organized play where the children can spread out and exert some energy!
