Community Childcare Partnership
Norman Public Schools, United Way, Community After School Program, The Cleveland County Family YMCA, CCFI, and various other community partners are pooling their resources to provide childcare in the event of a district-wide school closure beginning April 2, 2018. Enrollment space is limited and is open to all NPS Elementary Students on a very LIMITED, first-come, first-served basis. We STRONGLY encourage all parents to utilize friends and family to care for each other’s children cooperatively as we anticipate the need being greater than the care we will have available. The number of children we will be able to serve is largely dependent on the availability of volunteers.
Currently, plans are in place to provide for one week of care (more days may be added, if needed)*. All partners are currently donating their staff to provide care at no cost to our Norman families. However, we are requesting a donation of $3/day per student from our families to help cover the cost of supplies & snack.
* If the school closure exceeds one week, our partners may be required to assess a fee to continue providing care.

CASP Staff member and Griffin employee, Anjun Hussain, worked with the Adams Staff and CASP students to create beautiful handprint Christmas Tree artwork to share with Griffin patients this holiday season. Students used paint, glitter, pom poms, and markers to show their care and support of those struggling with various health issues this holiday season. Great job CASPers!
CASP is thrilled to have Breea Clark, Ward 6 City Council Member, visiting its programs to share information about Norman Forward projects, City of Norman Departments, the importance of recycling, as well as the importance of voting! The kiddos have really enjoyed the experience and we look forward to having Councilwoman Clark visit more CASP programs in the coming months!
