School Age

The Belmont Community Center School Age Program is a licensed child care program offering before and after school programming as well as programming on LPS non-school days. Both the before and after school programs as well as No School Fun Days provide students with a choice for indoor or outdoor fun, crafts, and supervised free play. During our after-school program, there is guided homework help. The objective of our school-age programs is to provide supervised and engaging activities that promote learning, physical education, and the development of social and creative skills.

Program FAQs

Who can register for School Age Programs at the BCC?

Students entering Kindergarten through those that are in 5th grade are welcome to enroll for BCC School Age Programs. There is no transportation for students attending a school outside of our neighborhood school, Belmont Elementary, but students do not have to be enrolled at Belmont to attend. Many students outside of our attendance area join in for our No School Fun Day Program.

What are some program and facility amenities?

The BCC has a meeting room and gymnasium used by our school age program participants. The meeting room has standard activities such as crafts, books, blocks, and toys as well as items we rotate into our learning experiences throughout the year.  As part of the center, outside there is a baseball field, fenced-in play area with a garden, sandbox, and cement patio. Nearby is a public picnic shelter, playground, and school playground, all of which are built into our program activity schedule.

What is the student to staff ratio?

15 students: 1 staff when on site at the BCC

Does the BCC provide an after school snack to my child?

Yes! The BCC is given the same snack as LPS after school programs. The snack calendar can be found here. You are welcome to pack a snack for your student. They will be instructed to eat that snack during the scheduled snack time (between 3:00-3:30pm).

When is the center closed?

Check out our calendar here.

What does drop off and pick up look like at the BCC?

Parents can pull up and call the center for drop off or pick up. Parents are also welcome to park in the parking lot and walk their child to and from the program.
Phone: 402-477-8854.

Will my student get help with homework while at the BCC?

Students will be encouraged to complete homework during their time at the BCC. We will have Homework Club on Mondays (Red Group) and Wednesdays (Blue Group) in the Belmont Cafeteria during club weeks.

Can my student attend Belmont CLC after school clubs and then go the BCC?

Yes! We pick up students from CLC clubs at 4:15pm and walk them back down to the BCC.

Can my student drop in for before or after school programs at the BCC?

Yes! Before School is $10/day/student and After School is $15/day/student. All paperwork is required before drop in. Please contact the BCC and Belmont School to follow up for additional planning.

Do No School Fun Days cost extra?

Yes, No School Fun Days cost $35/day/student for all families.

What is different about a No School Fun Day?

No School Fun Days open and close at regular hours (6:30am-5:45pm) and allow for students and staff to get creative with the day’s activities. Crafts, movies, organized games in the gym or outside are all favorites on No School Fun Days and the BCC keeps open lots of options to keep kids engaged throughout the day.

Does the BCC provide lunch on No School Fun Days?

No. Parents/guardians must pack a lunch for students on No School Fun Days. A microwave is available to use during student lunch. The BCC provides breakfast (or morning snack) as well as an afternoon snack.

My student is now in 6th grade, can they still attend No School Fun Days?


How can I pay my bill?

You can bring cash or check into the main office of the BCC or send money with your student. You can also pay online here.

What if I’m having trouble paying my bill?
