Durham Public Schools (DPS) Community Education provides high-quality before-school, afterschool, and summer camp programs at DPS elementary schools.
These programs provide a balance of structured and free choice activities designed to stimulate the students' social, emotional, intellectual, and physical development. Afterschool programs offer trained staff and a safe, stimulating environment. Students participate in theme-related activities in arts, crafts, music, dramatic play, science, language arts, cooking, and more. Students are given time to work on homework in a quiet environment. Before school programs open at 6:45 am and afterschool programs operate on school days from the time school is dismissed until 6:00 pm. Department of Social Services (DSS) vouchers are accepted and limited scholarships are available.
