Before & After School
Our Before and After School Program offers children a unique environment where they can learn, play, and explore.
Our professional well-educated experienced staff strives to get to know each child as a unique individual, instilling self-confidence, while making RCC a fun and rewarding place to be with a special clubhouse feel.
The program features a rotating schedule of exciting daily clubs, field trips, and numerous free play opportunities. The children are encouraged to “choose their own adventures” inside of our open flexible environment, forging valuable friendships and learning important life lessons along the way. Children are also able to enjoy quiet areas for homework and free art, as well as reading time.
Our facilities include a large open indoor space, complete with a cozy children’s library, homework area, educational toys, board games, computers, and tables for healthy snacks and meals prepared in our own RCC kitchen. We also offer a large wooded outdoor area complete with our large RCC Children’s Garden, fenced sports court, wooden decks, sandbox, picnic benches, environmentally friendly “green” playground, and plenty of trees with ample shade.
We maintain a 1:15 teacher-to-child ratio, providing opportunities for children to work with teachers on a one-to-one basis, or in small or large groups.
We provide care for children during regular RCC hours, opening at 6:30 am and closing at 6:30 pm. RCC provides school bus transportation to various elementary schools in the Reston area, escorting our children to and from their respective buses each day. Breakfast and an afternoon snack are provided, with a warm lunch on full days.
A unique facet of our program is that we provide care on many days when Fairfax County public schools are closed, including winter and spring breaks, teacher work days, and most snow days. A variety of field trips and activities are planned for these days.
I am a parent of RCC and my son Ben has really enjoyed being there. He was in the preschool for 2 years and this year is in the Kindergarten program which has been wonderful for him. He is a social little guy so the open environment with the preschool was perfect place for him to learn and make his own choices. Thanks RCC.
