KCA Kids Culinary Academy
(Children’s Activities in a Responsible Environment)
Welcome to KCA Kids Culinary Academy after school program. This booklet is designed to acquaint you with our school year program and policies.
KCA is a program offering a variety of culinary & creative activities with a focus on nutrition, fitness & FUN under adult supervision, for children enrolled in Burgaw Elementary.
The program was created to provide working parents, in Burgaw Elementary, quality care for their children during the school year.
We reserve the right to cancel the program should enrollment fall below what is needed to maintain the program.
KCA offers students a variety of physical, recreational, and educational activities which will include experimenting with cooking and baking, visits from other resources to extend fun learning experiences to their day, students designing their own personal cookbook that will be completed at the end of the year as well as dedicated time for homework.
1. To provide students with a safe, relaxed environment in a educational after school program.
2. To provide a nurturing, supportive atmosphere.
3. To offer a variety of activities and materials that promotes a child’s creativity, as well as social, emotional, physical and intellectual development.
4. To provide positive guidance for each student in order to develop confidence and responsibility, as well as respect for each other.
5. To offer visits from other resources to extend fun learning experiences.
Children often play outside; please send the appropriate clothing. Gym shoes are required for playing outside.
Snacks are provided; we encourage you to send a snack for after school if your child has a special request or dietary needs.
We strongly discourage children from bringing toys (including electronic devices) from home. We cannot be responsible for lost, broken, or stolen items.
Rules for Children
In every situation in life we are guided by a certain set of rules. Likewise, in every educational setting we also have rules. A leader in an educational position is continually faced with decisions about rules and consequences that will insure a successful program.
At KCA we have chosen a plan for the children that emphasizes the positive aspects of the rules listed below. With such a system, the guidelines are clearly defined and a sense of ambiguity does not exist. When a child knows what is expected of them, they have the opportunity to make an appropriate choice of behaviors. It is our intention that this system will contribute to the growth of your child’s self-control and their ability to choose the correct behavior.
Below are the rules of the Kids Culinary Academy.
Listen to and follow the directions of the Instructor
Walk whenever inside the home
Keep hands, feet and other objects to themselves
Always ask permission to leave
Be kind and considerate to instructor and other students.
KCA reserves the right to deny attendance to any child due to any continuous physical, emotional or behavioral problems. The methods the staff will use for conflict resolution are: setting clear limits, redirection and positive guidance. If a problem arises the following steps will be taken.
The child’s parent will be notified of the problem.
The parent(s) will be notified a second time in a written disciplinary note, if the behavior has not changed. At this time consequences of this behavior will be discussed.
If negative behavior persists, the instructor will meet with the parent(s) to develop an appropriate behavior plan along with a proposed timeframe for implementation of the plan. The parent(s) will also be informed of the daily progress of the child.
If all reasonable approaches are exhausted and the pattern of negative behavior continues and/or the child’s actions are a threat to the well being and safety of other children and staff, the child may be placed on suspension. Behaviors that warrant suspension including the following: physical violence, biting, persistent bullying and swearing, verbal harassment of peers or staff and unauthorized departure from the program grounds.
Suspensions may be up to 3 days for the first offense. If there is another incident, the child could be suspended for 5 days and with the 3rd offense, the student may be expelled from the KCA program.
We are closed if the District cancelled school for any reason.
During the school year, conditions may make it necessary to close because of inclement weather. School district practice is not to close unless weather and road conditions are such that the possible hazards outweigh the educational values of the day’s instruction.
Parents will be informed of school closings through radio and television announcements. All KCA programs will follow the school policy due to inclement weather or other emergency situations that may arise. Parents are advised to have an alternate plan worked out before such emergencies occur. * If we are able to accommodate your child- we will.
Student drop off and Pick up
Parents are responsible for seeing that the child is signed in at Burgaw Elementary to be picked up by the KCA transportation vehicle or as taking Bus #161 (Drop off address for KCA is 510 E. Fremont St. Burgaw, NC 28425). We do not allow walk-ins without a parent accompanying a child. Children must be picked up and signed out by 6:00 p.m. Please be ready to show picture I.D. which must be displayed by any adult that is authorized to pick up the child.
If the child has not been picked up by 7:00 p.m., the usual late fee will continue to be in effect. In addition, the leader will contact the Burgaw Police Department after the 7:00 p.m. deadline. The police will make the decision to call Protective Services. Please be assured that the program leaders will make every attempt to call the parents or any authorized emergency contact person listed. The safety and well-being of the child is our main concern. We understand that circumstance beyond your control, (i.e. weather, traffic) result
in the late pick up of your child. However, we do incur cost
to supervise your child therefore must charge a late fee.
We do not administer prescription or non prescription medication without the proper district protocol. Children may not keep or administer any type of medication. Please contact KCA Instructor for procedure.
According to the Health Department, children must be kept home if they have any symptoms of illness. During the course of the day’s activities, caregivers will take note of any changes in the appearance or behavior of the children. The KCA Instructor will contact you about coming to pick up your child if any symptoms appear while he/she is in our care.
Serious Accident or Injury
The procedure for a serious accident or injury of a child while in our care is that the child receives immediate attention and the appropriate people are called. The order of contact for a serious injury is:
1. Attend to the child
2. Call 911
