The Leopards are a before and after school program for children in kindergarten through 5th grade.
While CCS is doing virtual learning, this is a full-time room for school-age children.
The Leopards are committed to providing a home-like atmosphere where your school-age children can have a creative transition from home-to-school and back again.
Our after school program provides school-age children with an active, yet relaxed learning environment. The children have the opportunity to participate in both teacher and child planned activities, eat snack, work on homework, and enjoy time with their friends.
The After School Program has three primary rules for our classroom: be safe, be kind, and be respectful. The children need to make personal choices that follow these rules. Teachers will assist the children if they are having a difficult time making choices. If these choices persist then the teachers will be talking to parents and consulting with our director.
We have a ZERO TOLERANCE for all forms of intimidation and bullying. We appreciate your support in helping to reinforce these rules in our classroom.
Toys from home are both wonderful and a problem area for us. On the one hand, it is exciting to have a different toy to play with at After School. On the other hand, we have had problems with toys not being shared with others and also with toys/cards being exchanged/traded. This can cause disruption and ill feelings between children.
If a toy is shared with one child, our expectation is that it be shared with all. There is no card/toy swapping in our classroom. If children attempt to make trades, the items will be removed and given to parents at pick up time. Any problems that arise from home toy may lead to these toys being limited in the classroom.
NBCC is a nut free zone due to the severity of peanut and tree nut allergies in children. Please be sure to avoid sending products with peanuts, peanut butter and tree nuts even on field trip days.
We do not permit any hand held electronics in the classroom including the use of cell phones while in After School. If there is an emergency, teachers will make contact with parents.
Our Leopard information packet provides all of the necessary material you need to know about our room, whether enrolling a new child or how a process works.
