Bright Beginnings and Kaleidoscope are self-supporting programs funded by parental fees for service. SBCSC provides an in-kind contribution through the provision of school facilities and administrative support. After registration for the AM (Bright Beginnings Programs) students are dropped by parents at the host schools as early as 6:30 a.m. Students are cared for and then bused to their home school. In the PM (Kaleidoscope Club) students are transported to the host school or remain at their school if their school is a host school, and parents pick them up anytime before 5:30 p.m. If parents are late there is a charge. Students are provided a safe and structured program that includes a snack, homework time, reading zones, arts and crafts, community speakers and more in a safe environment.
