After School Enrichment Program (ASEP)
PLEASE NOTE: The After School Enrichment Program at Earthplace will be canceled until further notice due to COVID-19. This has been a very difficult decision for us to make, continue to check our website for updates. 

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  

At ASEP children unplug from the electronic world and plug into the natural world. Our 62-acre sanctuary, live animal exhibits, and interactive nature museum offers an unparalleled opportunity for nature discovery and environmental learning.
