Our Youth Programs are offered to our school-age community members (specific ages are listed under each program). Our Adult Programs are available to participants who are 18+.

Registration Information:
By registering for programs with Westborough Community Education, you agree to the policies detailed in the WCEP Family Handbook.

Outstanding Account Balance:
Any outstanding account balance owed to Westborough Community Education must be paid in full before a participant can attend any enrichment program.

Program Cancellations and Changes:
All programs are offered pending sufficient enrollment and are subject to cancellation at the discretion of Westborough Community Education. WCEP reserves the right to cancel programs that are under enrolled, and to change the times, locations, and instructors when necessary.

Payment Policy:
You become obligated to make payment when you register for the program. Payment for enrichment programs is DUE at the time of registration. For Youth Programs, please pay via the online payment link in your Kids Care account or by check. For Adult Programs, please complete the appropriate section on the registration form. Checks should be made payable to "Westborough Community Education." If payment is not received within two-weeks of registration, participants will be removed from the class list and you will be notified. 

Program Withdrawals:
Due to the fact that Westborough Community Education is self-sufficient and the number of participants determines whether a program will run, no refunds are available for any program unless it is cancelled. No credit will be issued for missed days. 

Inclement Weather Closings:
The decision to cancel enrichment classes due to inclement weather will be made by 10:00AM the day of the program. No programs will be held if Westborough Public Schools are closed. 

Make-Up Classes:
All attempts will be made to reschedule classes that have been cancelled due to inclement weather, instructor absence, or other unforeseen circumstances. Rescheduled classes will be made up at the end of the session. Classes missed due to participant absence for personal reasons cannot be made up.

We love to showcase what happens during our programs and occasionally take photos of participants and their work. Registration with Westborough Community Education assumes your approval for use of these images in print and online promotions. Please contact us by email if you do not agree to these permissions.

Staff Qualifications:
All WCEP staff and enrichment instructor undergo a background check (CORI, SORI, SAFIS) before the start of the session.

Additional Youth Information

Registration Information:
Children can attend an after school enrichment program regardless of the school they attend. However, there is NO transportation between schools and families are responsible for bringing children to other schools.

Drop-Off and Pick-Up Procedures:
For school year programs, children will be dismissed to the program right after school. Please inform the school if your child will be attending an enrichment program. Children who are attending from another school must be walked in and signed in with the enrichment instructor. At the end of class, instructors will bring children to the school's main entrance to be picked up by parents, guardians, or EDP staff. Children may go to EDP if they are scheduled for that day or have arranged for a drop-in. For summer enrichment, drop-off begins 10 minutes before the start of the program. Please do not leave your child unattended at the drop-off location before that time. 

Late Pick-Up Policy:
If your child has not been picked up after five minutes from the end of the class, they will be brought to EDP (during the school year) or the camp office (during the summer) and you will be charged a late fee of $15.00 for anytime within the first fifteen minutes you are late. An additional $1.00 per minute will be charged for each subsequent minute you are late. If you are late to pick up your child two times from an enrichment program, you will be terminated from the program and no refunds will be given. Please respect our instructors and drop-off and pick-up your child on-time.

Behavior Expectations:
All enrichment program participants are expected to behave in a respectful, kind, and safe manner while attending any program with Westborough Community Education. The Director reserves the right to dismiss any participant when that participant's behavior interferes with the rights and safety of others and/or the participant's behavior is disruptive to the program.
