School Age Programs
- Do you need a place for your 5- 12 year old when you have to be at work early and you need a safe place for your child to catch their bus?
- Do you need a place where your child can go and be in a safe supervised, structured environment while you’re at work?
- Do you need a place to send your children during school breaks and summer?
- Do you want a place that offers enrichment and a great social experience for your child where they can build long lasting friendships, be exposed to new things, and get to explore their interest while learning?
RCN’s Kids club is the answer!
RCN’s program offers children the opportunity to have a new learning experience outside of school by planning and carrying out interesting activities with other children from diverse, multicultural backgrounds. In this environment, children develop an enthusiasm for learning, exploring, and creating. Children also need a place to feel safe and secure to grow their self-confidence and develop friendships. Our program staff foster a caring and relaxing atmosphere to help children meet their physical and emotional needs. We also encourage parental involvement to build mutual trust among you, your children, and RCN.
RCN’s dynamic programs are always changing to meet the needs and interests of the children we serve. We organize our programs to give each child the experience of making choices, accepting responsibility and increasing independence. Some of our activities include:
|Arts and Crafts||Citizenship Development||Community Involvement|
|Cooking||Computer Activities||Dramatic Play|
|Field Trips||Games and Puzzles||Homework|
|Sports||Music, Dance, Visual Arts, Theater||Outside Recreational Activities|
|Reading||Science Experiments (STEM)*||PATHS*|
|Girl Scouts||And More!|
*STEM is an acronym referring to the academic disciplines of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
*The PATHS® curriculum is a comprehensive program for promoting emotional and social competencies and reducing aggression and behavior problems in elementary school-aged children while simultaneously enhancing the educational process in the classroom.
