Child reading during Extended School Enrichment Program

Extended School Enrichment

    Enrollment for the 2021-2022 school-year Registration is Open

    Extended School Enrichment,
    a Before and After School Program

    Extended School Enrichment (ESE) is founded on the belief that every student is capable of success. We are committed to setting high expectations and assuring the development of a strong foundation in basic life skills. The program offers quality care to all children enrolled in K-6 within Carmel Clay Schools. 

    Each of the 11 elementary school sites will have the same core components of ESE, with each school customized to serve the best interests of the students and parents/guardians. Our site supervisors and counselors act as mentors to students while teaching fundamental skills. We cannot wait for your child(ren) to attend our program this year!

    Benefits of ESE

    Our before and after-school program prioritizes a safe environment for every student, thus providing parents/guardians a high level of confidence in our team.

    Extended School Enrichment Rules


    • The ESE sign-in/sign-out process might look slightly different at your child’s school during the 21/22 school year due to COVID-19 precautions. Please work with your child’s ESE Site Supervisor to understand all sign-in/sign-out protocols prior to your child’s first day of attendance at ESE.
    • In order to alleviate some of the congestion during heavy pick up times, we respectfully ask all parents/guardians to call/text the site phone 15-20 minutes in advance of their arrival so we can have their child ready to go. Conversations about an ESE student’s program participation (e.g. behavior, account questions, etc) will not take place at sign-in/sign-out to help expedite the process. If a parent/guardian needs to discuss any aspect of their child’s ESE participation, we ask that they request a phone call from a supervisor to occur before or after program hours. Staff will work diligently to ensure that this follow-up occurs promptly upon the parent/guardian’s request.
    • Students are only released to individuals listed as “authorized pick-ups” who must be at least 16 years of age and must be listed within the participant’s online account. All ESE staff is required to check identification of authorized individuals.
    • Late fees will be assessed to any pick-ups after 6:00 p.m.; the charge is $1 for every minute late per child (e.g. a child picked up at 6:04 p.m. equals a late fee charge of $4).


    • Monthly and drop-in enrollments may not be transferred or refunded after the final program day of the respective program month (i.e. payments made for the month of August 2021, will not be transferred or refunded after August 31, 2021). All refunds are subject to a $10 service charge per participant per cancelled program/pass. Registration fee, 20-visit and 5-visit pass sales are FINAL. 


    • Cancellations for a camp week/day must be requested a minimum of two weeks from the start date to receive a refund, less a $10 service charge for cancellation per camp week/day per camper.
    • All refunds are subject to State Board of Accounts claim procedure and may take 3-5 weeks.


    • ESE staff and students will practice live emergency drills throughout the school year simulating various emergencies to ensure proper preparation in the case of an actual crisis during the ESE program.
