Winn Brook Child Care (WBCC) provides high quality before- and after-school programming for children in the Winn Brook School population, kindergarten through fourth grade. If additional spaces in the program remain, they will be open to children of the same age group within the Winn Brook district, as well as other Belmont elementary schools. WBCC offers supervised and staff-directed activities that aim to enhance children’s educational, social physical and emotional development.
The philosophy of the program dictates that the needs of the children come first, but that the special circumstances of parents/families using the program are also considered. It is a goal of the program to treat each child individually, so long as the accommodation of individual needs can be accomplished without harm to the overall health of the program. WBCC recognizes the various needs of children of different ages and stages of development and uses those variations as the basis for the program’s curriculum.
Winn Brook Advisory Council
The Advisory Council for 2016-17 are led by Co-chairs Amy Brown and Kara Morin. This parent-based advisory group works on behalf of the Before and After School program and in collaboration with Dr.Ted Wilson, Executive Director of Schools for Children and Maridel Perdomo, Director of Winn Brook Child Care who both sit as active members of the council. All members were recommended to the Schools for Children Board of Trustees and were elected by unanimous vote prior to the start of the current school year. This year’s members are: Helen Josephine, Tatum Abe, Joshua Gould, Missy Morley, Amanda Rettig, Natalie Reino and Jessica Mutch. We are delighted to have their active support in making our program such a wonderful resource for our Winn Brook children and families. We invite parents to reach out to any member of the council to share ideas, offer suggestions and/or have program features explained and clarified.
