Southborough Extended Day Program, Inc. (SEDP) has been helping families with out-of-school childcare for more than thirty years!
Childcare is available for Southborough families for before and after school hours but also during many days off where families need help - holidays, teacher conference days, half-days and February and April vacations weeks.
We strive to provide the highest quality program, where parents are assured of a safe, healthy, happy and fun environment for their children. Our programs are designed to be educational and socially enriching.
We believe that children are happiest when given choices during their out of school time. SEDP provides a “child centered” curriculum. All activities are age appropriate and appealing to school age children.
The children are encouraged to participate in a variety of activities so that they may explore new interests and build upon current ones. At SEDP, we foster an atmosphere where children gain independence and are encouraged to make their own activity choices. A variety of activities are offered daily such as cooking, art, music, drama, science, sports, homework help and more. Activities are often theme based, providing opportunities to try new things.
On a monthly basis the Site Coordinators plan a plethora of activities that provide learning opportunities for the students and also provide reinforcement for social, physical, and academic skills learned during the school day. Much of SEDP’s social skills focus is on building friendships, manners, cultivating positive relationships with peers and adults as well as teaching skills in conflict resolution.
