Extended School Program (ESP)
The Extended School Program (ESP) offers morning care beginning at 7:00 A.M. and after care from dismissal to 6:00 P.M. for grades Pre-K - 8. The care includes quiet time for play, reading and help with schoolwork. In addition, snacks, movies and extended playtime are part of afternoon care. The ESP is open to currently enrolled students at St. Pius X and is staffed by teachers and other qualified individuals approved by the State of Maryland Department of Human Resources Child Care Administration.
Tuition is calculated on a per diem basis for the entire school year, but is collected in nine equal monthly payments from August to April. There is no May payment.
Spaces in the program are limited with priority given to:
1) students currently in the program
2) siblings of students currently participating in the program
3) currently enrolled students
4) incoming students
If you are interested in the ESP please call one of the program Co-Directors, Ms. Leigh Hampton or Mrs. Michelle Pickering at 240-486-7472, between 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm for further information and a copy of the ESP Handbook.
Co-Directors: Ms. Leigh Hampton and Mrs. Michelle Pickering
A drop in room is available for infrequent aftercare. Please sign up using by clicking on the ESP drop-in button. If aftercare is needed for 3 or more days each week, it will be more cost-effective to sign up for regular aftercare.
