Before and After School Child Care

In El Dorado County, students and families benefit from the high-quality services provided by public education and community based child care programs. One example is the El Dorado County Office of Education’s (EDCOE) Charter Extended Day Program, which has provided educationally enriching child care throughout the county since 1984. Located on the Sutter's Mil School campus, Extended Day provides a safe and engaging learning environment to our students both before and after school.   Extended Day’s services are also available during school vacations, including a robust summer program.
