Program Philosophy

We at Rabbit Creek Elementary School, School Age Child Care (SACC) program believe that we are here for the child. We believe that school-age children have the capacity to make intelligent choices with the help of creative, nurturing adults. We believe that school-age children need to make choices and we encourage them to do so. We believe that we are equal partners with parents and teachers in the development and growth of children. We believe that children can act appropriately in non-stressful situations and we will provide many challenging, safe and successful opportunities for them to do so. In this regard, however, we believe that children that do not act appropriately should receive appropriate consequences for their actions. In all cases we define "appropriate behavior" as: respect to adults and peers and their property, including personal space; good manners and appropriate language; control of their bodies including mouth, hands and feet.
