K-8th Grade Programs

We know that your student spends most of their day in the classroom, but we also know how very important it is to have additional educational help to support their special needs. That's why we've built our after-school programs to correspond with our five priorities: literacy, math, orientation & mobility, socialization, and independence. But all your student will know is that our classes are FUN!


Tutor 1


After-School Homework Help & Open Rec

Mondays - Fridays, Sept 4 - May 17
2 - 5 p.m.

NBCF has developed an enriching after-school program in the hours between school dismissal and NBCF programming. Students will have the opportunity to complete homework or school projects, enjoy a healthy snack, and have some down-time with friends before After-School Adventures programming starts.

Horsin Around

Kids Choice

Tuesdays, September 4 - 25
5 - 7 p.m.

NBCF just moved into a new home, so we developed a short four-week program to introduce students to the new Learning Center! It's KIDS CHOICE - students will work together each week to choose their own adventure by previewing some of the programs offered throughout the year. Possible ‘adventures’ include: art, cooking, robotics, music, and more!


BookTime Buddies

Saturdays: Oct 20, Nov 3, Dec 1, Jan 26, Feb 9, March 30, Apr 27, May 4
10 a.m. - noon

Does your student have a fear of reading aloud? Want them to increase their literacy skills in a safe and friendly environment? We’ve got the solution for you when we pair your Braille or large-print reader with a certified therapy dog “buddy” for a fun reading adventure. This class incorporates group activity time, as well as individual reading time.

What's Cooking I

Tuesdays, October 2 - November 6
5 - 7 p.m.

This introductory class provides a relaxed atmosphere for beginners to learn their way around the kitchen while developing important life skills for future independent living. Utilizing Brailed and/or adapted kitchen equipment, techniques and tools, each class allows students to work together to prepare a multi-course meal.


What's Cooking II

Tuesdays, October 2 - November 6
5 - 7 p.m.

Building on the techniques developed in What's Cooking I, the second level of this course will provide beginners with more in-depth knowledge of meal planning and preparation, nutrition, and culinary skills. Participants must have completed What's Cooking I to register for this class.

Fun with Art

Tuesdays, November 27 - December 18
5 - 7 p.m.

We know art can be mostly visual, so in partnership with certified art teachers from Opportunity Village, we’ve created a class where budding artists learn about different art mediums in a tactile way. An Art Showcase at the conclusion of the class will allow parents to view their artist’s masterpieces.



Tuesdays, January 8 - February 12
5 - 7 p.m.

NBCF's STEAM program is an educational approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking. The end results are students who take thoughtful risks, engage in experiential learning, persist in problem-solving, embrace collaboration, and work through the creative process.

Tuesdays, February 19 - March 26

Horsin' Around Sports

Tuesdays, April 2 - May 14
5 - 7 p.m.

Mobility, orientation, flexibility, and movement are super important for those with visual impairments. Horsin’ Around Sports introduces students to a variety of adapted sports and exercise techniques that they can use through adulthood.
