The EDMO Full Day model is for districts who are looking to create a full day STEAM & SEL-focused, whole child enrichment experience for their students. EDMO staff lead every element and activity of the camp day.
Our Integrated Full Day model is for districts looking to create a seamless 9-hour summer program where district teachers lead daily academic stations in between enrichment stations for the first half of the day. EDMO staff support teachers during their instructional time and teachers support EDMO staff during enrichment times as well as participate fully in the camp culture, rallies, songs, games, etc. EDMO staff lead all the afternoon activities of the day.
In a typical “A+B” Model the students attend a half day of academics-focused district summer school in the morning (A), and then transition to a half day of EDMO STEAM & SEL and outdoor recreation activities in the afternoon (B). District teachers and staff lead the morning lessons and EDMO staff lead the afternoon enrichment activities, camp games, songs, skits, etc. EDMO and district combined program up to 9 hours a day.
Our Comprehensive After-school Programs run 180 days per school year (with the option for 30 intersession days in addition). Each day students rotate between STEAM & SEL activities, academic support and outdoor games. Our Site Director and Instructors meet regularly with teachers to align after school activities with what students are learning during the school day. In addition to daily activities, students and staff plan monthly activities that align with school events, national and cultural holidays, and family engagement goals of the program.
Our Full-Time School Day/After-school Programs are designed to have EDMO staff support your student supervision and classroom instruction during the school day and then transition to running our hands-on STEAM & SEL after school programs in the afternoons. Staff have even more opportunity to become part of the school culture and understand what academic and SEL skills teachers are focusing on with each student. Requires funding in addition to ELO-P funding.
Our Blended Partnership Model is designed for districts with diverse funding needs, combining ELO-P funds, family contributions, and other funding sources to provide exceptional STEAM & SEL programming. This adaptable approach ensures students have access to engaging out-of-school learning experiences, regardless of financial limitations. By working closely with your district, we create a tailored program that meets your unique requirements and maximizes resources for optimal student enrichment.
Many of our families in the service industry have been financially impacted because of COVID-19. This is our way of enrolling students whose families may not have been able to do that for their children.
