Behavior Policy
NCE wants all children to be successful and safe in all of our classes. We ask our instructors to be clear with expectations and to deliver curriculum in an engaging way. We ask that students be respectful to their peers, instructors, class materials, and class space whether online or in-person. If your child is engaging in a challenging behavior, we will try to help your child re-engage appropriately. If we are unsuccessful in helping your child re-engage, we will strategize with you about the best way forward and hope to come up with a positive solution, which may include class withdrawal. Refunds are not given to families of children who need to leave a class due to an inability to engage appropriately. NCE asks students to follow Newton Public Schools’ online practices and guidelines which are found on the NPS website.

Late Fees
Please respect our staff and pick your child up on time. A fee of $25 will be charged for each late pickup. After three late pickups, you will be asked to have a conversation with our office staff and action may be taken up to and including withdrawal of your child from the program with no refund.

Special Needs
Please share any additional information that will help us support your child. Email us at staff@newtoncommunityed.org and we will collaborate with you to explore how we can help.
