Extended Learning Centers of Watauga County Schools


The Extended Learning Center (ELC) after school program offers supervised educational, recreational, and enrichment activities 2:30 – 5:30 p.m. for Watauga County Schools students in grades K-5 at each elementary school.  We open at 12:00 on scheduled early release days, but do not operate on holidays, teacher work days, or when schools are closed or dismissed early due to inclement weather. A holiday/work day/snow day program is available at Hardin Park for most of these situations. Each after school site is licensed as a school-age child care program by the NC Division of Child Development.
