During the open house, attendees can experience the life-long skills NBCF teaches to its students through various programs including:

  • Offering the first and only pre-school for visually impaired students in the state of Nevada.
  • Dots & Tots program for ages 2-3; a class for younger students and their parents to help prep for preschool while also teaching critical learning tools. This program is offered Monday thru Wednesday, 9 a.m. – 11 a.m. to both students and their parents.
  • Homework Support is offered Monday thru Friday 3pm – 5pm, with programming taking place from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m.

NBCF’s open house will provide the community with a chance to explore each of these services in addition to learning a little about what a day in the life of a student with a visual impairment or blindness is like. Staff, board members and students will be available to share what makes NBCF such a critical part of the Southern Nevada community.
