The Builder Bunch formula begins with us learning about you. Whether you are new to Builder Bunch or you’re having us back for our After School Enrichment Programs, Spirit Nights, In-School Field Trips or Day Camps, this Discovery process ensures we’ve tailored our programs to meet your specific needs and interests each time. There is no obligation at this point, we’ll simply use this information to ensure we’ve presented you with a proposal that best fits your STEAM-based need. Each of the easy steps below reflects our years of experience in doing just that. LET'S BUILD.

How many total classrooms do you have? (required)
We prefer to start getting materials circulating as early as six weeks prior to the program.

School or PTA/PTO Website (required)
School Newsletter (required)

Step 3: Scheduling
For our curriculum to be most effective, our Program should be held between 10 weeks and 16 weeks; 12 weeks is ideal.
How many weeks per term would you prefer our ASEP to run? (required)
Preferred start date? (required)
Preferred end date? (required)
How many days per week can we conduct our program? (required)
What day(s) of the week would you prefer?
First Choice: (required)
Second Choice: (required)
Our experience shows that we need at least one solid hour of dedicated building time per class to deliver a spectacular experience to your students.We also know that kids have a far more enjoyable and productive experience when they are able to build with kids within their same developmental level. This is why we offer the option of hosting Same-Day-Staggered sessions or sessions on separate days, grades K-2 the first hour (or first day) and 3-5th Grade the second hour. (or second day)
2:30-3:35 grades K-2
3:40–4:45 grades 3-5
Would we be able to follow this Same-Day-Staggered approach at your school? (required)
Would we be able to host sessions on (2) different days based on grade level? (required)
What time should the first session start and end? (required)
If you are interested in the Same-Day-Staggered Approach, What time frame should the second session start and end? (required)
If the staggered approach will not fit for your school, please let us know your suggestions on splitting the grades up?
Please let us know the dates of your semester breaks?
Step 4: Onsite Logistics
We typically use spaces that have configurable tables and chairs, such as classrooms and media centers, however we can be flexible, as long as the room can comfortably accommodate up to 24 participants at a time.
Where will we hold our session (classroom, cafeteria, media room, etc.)?
Will we have access to the school’s WiFi? (required)
Will there be available space for securing our equipment between sessions on-site? (required)
What are the procedures for transitioning students to and from our session? (required)
The more we know about each student and their after school routine the better. We typically request the full and preferred names of our students, as well as their age, grade level, homeroom teacher’s name and transportation.
Please list additional information you’d like us to request during ASEP registration. (required)
Step 5: Pricing & Fees
Because there are so many variables involved in determining how to estimate pricing we cannot list the exact fee schedule, however our experience shows us that using the approximate rate of $15-$17.50 per participant, per class is a pretty safe way to estimate cost. (Note: We do make concessions on this price based on the number of participants.)
What price per semester, per participant would you suggest, based on your other enrichment programs? (required)
There are a number of ways your After School Enrichment Program can be funded. The most labor intensive is through an individual student participation fee, which Builder Bunch handles for you. We process all registrations online and regularly updating the school with our figures. We’ve also had several organizations choose to leverage various budget sources of their own to cover all or a portion of the expenses for their students.
How do you anticipate your program will be funded? (required)
If all or part of your ASEP will be funded by organization resources, please provide us with billing information:
Accounts payable contact
Do you charge a vendor fee? If YES, Please explain your fee structure? (required)
Step 6: Staffing
Is a school staff member or parent volunteer required to be in the session?
Step 7: Final Notes
This should be enough information for us to get started putting together a unique plan for your school.
If we didn’t cover everything please add any additional notes below:(required)
Important: Your organization’s promotional support is critical to the success of your program. Once we draft your estimate and proposal, specific mutual responsibilities will be fully outlined.
