    Extended School Enrichment,
    a Before and After School Program

    Extended School Enrichment (also known as ESE) is founded on the belief that each and 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 is open to all children enrolled in K-6 within Carmel Clay Schools. We cannot wait for your child(ren) to attend our program this year!

    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.

    Continued Services Through “Partner in Prevention”

    We have achieved “Partner in Prevention” status again this year, a designation awarded by the nonprofit Darkness to Light, to organizations which take extra steps to protect the children they serve by training staff to understand the issue of child sexual abuse, identify unsafe situations and practices, and react responsibly in the best interest of the children they serve.

    One in 10 children will be sexually abused before the age of 18. We earned the “Partner in Prevention” designation by providing Stewards of Children training to over 90% of its management, staff, and volunteers. This evidence-informed program is scientifically proven to help participants prevent and respond to child sexual abuse. “Partner in Prevention” was created as a national standard to help parents and caregivers recognize organizations that take child protection seriously by implementing policy and training staff to prevent child sexual abuse.

    Darkness to Light is an international organization that leads the movement to end child sexual abuse by educating and empowering adults in education, youth-serving organizations, and communities to protect children. Darkness to Light has affiliates in all 50 states and 16 international locations.
