Discovery Extended Care

Discovery Extended Care (DEC) is a true extension of the Discovery philosophy and incorporates

positive discipline, student-driven enrichment, and inquiry-based activities facilitated by engaged, well-trained professionals.


We are committed to providing a safe, comfortable environment where students can play, study,

explore, and create.


We are community-focused and will work with our school administrators and staff to ensure that

every child — regardless of financial circumstances — receives quality care.  To that end,

financial assistance is available. 




Summer Camp!


The Extended Care program will be hosting four summer sessions in July on the Discovery Charter School Phoenix Campus!  We are open to entering K-8 students from Phoenix and Falcon Campuses.  You may sign up for one session, or up to four sessions.  The summer camp program runs from 9am - 3pm with morning and aftercare options available.  We are excited to announce that not only will we have a fabulous team of DEC employees on staff, but also our PE teacher Josh Robles!  We have a variety of activities available during the camp including cooking classes, sports activities and group games, science and building projects, gardening and nature classes and many art classes and activities.  Not to mention WATER PLAY!! We are looking forward to spending our summer with you.
