Center-Driven Programming

The CBFRC Teams develop, plan and facilitate an array of fun, engaging and educational programs for children and families. 

Arts & Crafts have many benefits for all age groups. It encourages creative expression, boosts fine motor skills, improves decision-making skills and builds confidence. The Center offers a variety of projects that involve paint, innovation, hand-eye coordination and imaginative processes. Arts & Crafts can be enjoyed by people of all ages.
Center calendars will indicate specific suggested ages for certain activities -
from little ones, to teens, to adults, to seniors.


Sight Words are commonly used words children are encouraged to memorize by sight without having to sound them out. During this eight-week course, children will be engaged in fun, hands-on activities and taught new words weekly, while caregivers learn techniques and resources to promote learning at home.
Results from pretests and posttests are documented and shared with caregivers.
This class is designed for students in grades K-2nd.
