• Explore, Create, Innovate - experience and learn through fun, hands-on programs! 

    The Downingtown Community Education Foundation wants to inspire all children to learn, grow and reach their potential.  Our mission is to enhance and enrich the education of all students through programs that support innovative and forward-thinking educational opportunities. We are pleased to work with the outstanding teachers in the Downingtown Area School District to provide these programs that engage students and encourage them to combine technical knowledge and skills with creativity. 

    During the school year, programs are offered once a week for 7 weeks afterschool for 2 hours.  There is no transportation provided - parents are responsible to pick up students at 5:30pm (gr 1-6 programs) or 4:45pm (gr 7&8 programs).  Program offerings vary at each school based on teacher availability.  Programs rotate from school to school so each session is different.
