Program FAQs

Who can register for the Summer Program at the BCC?

Children ages 3-13 years old are welcome to enroll for the BCC Summer Program. If your child is entering kindergarten in the fall we encourage you to enroll them in our Preschool Program. Children ages 3-5 years old will have a modified schedule that better accomodates their developmental needs.

What are some program and facility amenities?

The BCC has a meeting room and gymnasium used by our summer 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 summer.  As part of the center, outside, there is a baseball field, fenced in play area, sandbox, and cement patio. Nearby is a public picnic shelter, two playgrounds, and public pool, all of which are built into our summer program activity schedule.

What is the student to staff ratio?

  • 15 school-age children: 1 staff when on-site at the BCC
  • 10 preschool-age children: 1 staff when on-site at the BCC
  • 6 children: 1 staff when off-site swimming

When is the center closed?

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

Parents/Guardians are welcome to come in and drop off or pick up their child. Parents/Guardians also have the option to pull up and call the center for drop off or pick up. Children are sent out our front door which is located on 12th St by the flagpole. The BCC phone number is 402-477-8854. Parents can add or remove additional authorized pick up persons at anytime throughout the year.

What is the BCC Summer Program swimming policy?

The BCC Summer Program goes swimming at the Belmont Pool twice a week at no additional charge to families. The ratio to take children swimming is 1 adult for every 6 children. Parents/guardians must give permission and insight into a child’s swimming ability on the SSP registration form. Furthermore, Belmont pool lifeguards assess swimming ability and regulate in which parts of the pool a child is allowed to swim.

Children and families always have the option to opt out of swimming and will instead participate in a planned activity on-site at the BCC. If a child displays unsafe behaviors they may lose their swim day privileges. The BCC will always communicate with a parent/guardian in such a circumstance.

All children will be required to supply their own sunscreen, suit, and towel. The pool does not allow for toys or life jackets, but children may bring their own pair of goggles. Staff apply sunscreen twice on pool 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 child. You can also pay online here. 

Questions regarding your bill can be sent to the BCC Financial Specialist at finance@belmontcommunitycenter.org

 

What if I’m having trouble paying my bill?

Communicating with the BCC is very important. We don’t want families to fall behind and thus unable to send their children to our programming. Please contact the office by emailing at belmontcc@belmontcommunitycenter.org or by phone 402.477.8854. We are happy to work with you on a payment plan.
