FDC @ Ditmas: Rules & Regs 

Welcome to the 2014-2015 FDC After-school program! FDC after-school program at Ditmas commits to make every effort to provide a program schedule that meets both the children's and families needs. In order to ensure quality after school programming, please take the time to read the following information to become familiar with our program policies.

If you should have any questions, concerns, or comments, feel free to call Gerard Sargent, Program Director. I am available Monday to Friday, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm at (718) 859-3800 ext. 206.

  10. Finding Math:  Finding Math uses puzzles and games to help students develop analytical, reasoning and logic skills that are core elements of mathematical thinking.  The goal of Finding Math is not for students to win games and solve puzzles but be able to explain why certain strategies lead to winning games or solving puzzles.
  11. STEM Forensic Science: Forensic scientists study the details of a crime and report their findings to a court of law. To do this, forensic scientists perform physical and chemical analyses on criminal evidence submitted by the police or other law enforcement agencies. The physical evidence may be found at the scene of a crime, on a victim, or both. Regardless, forensic scientists use a variety of problem-solving methods, mathematical principles, complex instruments, and microscopic examining techniques to explain the intricacies of each piece of evidence from a case. Some forensic scientists work in laboratories, while others conduct their analysis at the scene of the crime.

Arrival/Dismissal Procedures and Late pick up:

All participants are required to attend our after school program from Tuesday through Friday, 2:20 - 6:00pm. There will be no early dismissal, unless a parent/guardian gives consent for their child to leave early. All FDC participants who do not have consent, must be picked up on time each day between 5:35 and 5:50pm.


  • Arrival: Upon arrival, all FDC Participants will be greeted by our FDC staff in the auditorium, located on the 1st floor of the school building.
  • Dismissal: Participants will be dismissed from the 1st floor entry: located near the security desk.


In every instance, FDC will attempt to work with a family that is having difficulty with lateness; however, if a parent or guardian is late, and no alternative is available, FDC staff will accompany your child to the local police precinct. 

Discipline Plan

When a child follows the rules, our after school program operates smoothly and this enables the entire club to enjoy great days together. If a child continually disrupts procedures, the following steps will be taken:


  • 1st incident:  Counselor(s) will speak with the child
  • 2nd incident: A written warning and a phone call will be made to the guardian; any other behavioral issues found detrimental to the program will end in the same day suspension.
  • 3rd incident: A meeting will be scheduled with the child, guardian and Director. A written contract will be made between parent and child. Depending on the severity of the offense, your child could face suspension from the program. 
  • If the situation cannot be resolved, the child may be dismissed from the program. This is a last resort, and one which we do not like to take. However, the safety of all children is our priority and our goal is to provide children with a safe, healthy learning environment. 

Personal Property

Radios, I-pods, Gameboys, CD players, video games and other personal items CANNOT be brought to our after school program. If your child brings one of the items listed above, his/her counselor will remove the toy from him/her and give it to the parent at dismissal. FDC is not responsible for any lost items including swimsuits, backpacks, clothing or any other personal items.
