After School Enrichment Program (ASEP)

Earthplace’s After School Enrichment Program (ASEP) is licensed by the State of Connecticut Office of Early Childhood. This program provides a unique nature-based experience for our students and it allows children to connect with nature in a meaningful way. ASEP provides working parents with the knowledge that their child will have a seamless transition from school to an afternoon of fun and learning.

If you are interested in the ASEP program you must schedule a tour with the program director Lisa Geter, to do so please email Lisa at
