Field Trips

Field trips are an essential part of learning at ECDS. From the time they are very young, our students become accustomed to the concept of a wider classroom. Kindergarteners head to the YMCA for weekly swimming lessons, the Downtown Cabaret several times a year, and many other destinations.

As they grow, we continue to bring students out into the community for a wide range of hands-on experiences.

The following list is a sampling of our outings:
– Audubon Society Nature Facilities
