Beyond the Bell
Both our Bearss Avenue and Early Childhood Campus offer an early morning care program that allows parents to drop their student/s off as early as 7:30 am. CDS families can enjoy this service at no charge. Additionally, we offer a shuttle bus from our Bearss campus to the ECC each morning. Please contact our Transportation Manager, Carl Storck, for more information about the ECC shuttle bus.
Both our Bearss Avenue and Early Childhood Campus offer an extended day program until 6:00 pm daily as well as weekly enrichment clubs. During a child's stay in the after-school extended day programs, they will be able to participate in supervised indoor/outdoor play, crafts, and quiet time, while older students will have the option to work on homework.
