All children in ESDP benefit from supervised recreation with their friends. Older children have homework sessions, which allow families to enjoy their evenings together. Younger children participate in arts and crafts and other activities which allow them to play and learn in a relaxed environment. Nutritious snacks are provided by the school. Group recreation and sports activities encourage children to have fun and exercise in a safe and familiar setting.
The Program Director for ESDP works closely with the Department of Social Services to ensure a safe and quality program for our children.
The academic year program is available from 7:15 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. for all school days. Enrollment options include complete and partial school-year sessions and drop-in care.
During the summer, Cape Henry Collegiate offers an exciting program that combines the best advantages of day care and summer day camps.

ESDP summer activities include arts and crafts, sports, games, picnics to Virginia Beach parks, and field trips to other favorite places.
