We are so grateful for all the support we receive from BASCP families, Bowen Elementary School personnel, and the Newton community. There are many ways you may help us provide superior care for our students. You may donate supplies, provide financial support, or volunteer your time.

Donate Supplies

Please help the BASCP staff make their projects and activities spectacular by keeping an eye out for some materials that you may find lying around the house or items that you just don’t know what to do with! We would greatly appreciate any help that you can offer.

Some materials we would like for art projects: yarn, ribbon, buttons, rick-racks, cloth scraps, seashells, thread, wrapping paper, cardboard (cereal boxes, etc.), felt scraps, plastic bottles, string.

Paper: our children use a lot of paper. Before you throw away or recycle paper at work or home, consider bringing it to us. Backs of used pieces of paper may be used for drawing, writing, or games. Before you donate your paper, please make sure there is no confidential or inappropriate content printed on it.

Games & Toys: We accept age appropriate games and toys that are in very good condition.

Please feel free to contact us if you have anything else you would like to donate.

Financial Support

The best way to support BASCP financially is to donate to the Tuition Assistance Program (TAP). TAP helps children continue to grow and play here at BASCP.  You may write a check made out to, “BASCP Tuition Assistance Fund,” and mail it to BASCP, 280 Cypress Street, Newton Centre, MA 02459.


BASCP sometimes hosts or participates in special events. This is a great opportunity to volunteer. Check in periodically for volunteer opportunities.

Also, please contact us if you have a specific skill or if you can provide a professional service that may help BASCP.
