A Special Message to the Enfield Community
We’re excited to tell you that ERfC is applying for a five-year 21st Century Community Learning Center (CCLC) grant from the Connecticut Department of Education to help expand the Before & After School Centers located in the Enfield Schools. If funded, this application will increase the number of Enfield K-2 students (144) enrolled in after school and summer activities. Grants are already in place to serve grades 3-8. This funding also makes it possible for ERfC to offer a sliding fee schedule based on family income. With this CCLC grant, ERfC will not refuse any student due to financial circumstances.
Please feel free to contact us if you have questions. Once we have completed the application for funding, we can make it available for the community to review.

I am really grateful for Summer Lunch Bunch. My daughter, November Cole, loves coming to Summer Lunch Bunch. November enjoys all the activities ERfC provides every summer. This is our 4th year coming to this event and we enjoy it. Thank you very much for having Summer Lunch Bunch in our community!
My children and I have been coming to Summer Lunch Bunch for 2 years and I am a volunteer with Summer Lunch Bunch. The kids really get the chance to improve and learn through the activities provided at Summer Lunch Bunch as well as receive healthy lunches. When kids come here, they interact with one another and get off of their electronic devices. They are able to make friends, play with educational toys, participate in raffles, and take part in events such as story time. I love Summer Lunch Bunch with my children.
I think the summer escape program is absolutely a great thing for kids, this will be my son's 4th year attending summer escape and he loves it, it keeps him active all summer long and he gets to interact with other kids and keeps him ocuppied so he's not bored or stuck inside all summer. Also it's a place I know he will be safe at while I'm at work during the week. Overall I love the program and all the staff that works there and makes it a great place for our children.
Thank you so much for the opportunity to be a part of this special day [Fall for Enfield] as a vendor, Karen's Wreaths & Things. Absolutely loved every part of it. So many people to talk to. Great day! Hope to see you next year! It was a pleasure meeting you Connie and getting a very nice welcoming hug :)
Everything about the event was awesome! Princesses, Music, Books, Home Depot, food, Mums, and SO much more. Grateful for a great day.:)
I am so impressed by the ERfC (Educational Resources for Children) staff in Enfield. They are caring and compassionate. I would highly recommend them for before and after school care.
