 The After School Enrichment Program is for children who are 5-12 years old and attend another school during the day.

Do you need afterschool care for your children?

Send your child to the Child Care and Learning Center’s Afterschool Program!

After being indoors all day, children need outdoor time to exercise, contemplate, create, and engage.  CCLC’s afterschool program is located on eight acres with a large pavilion, a field, wooded trails, and a creative building area.  We offer a healthy snack, supervised free-play time, teacher-led small group activities, and an optional homework time.


The afterschool children also have access to our Children-in-Nature Program.  The Children-in-Nature teachers offer programming each day including discovery walks on the trails, gardening, crafts, outdoor skills, and more.


New for 2018!  Sign your child up for our extra enrichment programs.  Examples of programs to be offered this year include 4-H, birding, nature crafts, and cooking.  If there is a program you would like to see offered, let us know.


Quick facts about our program:

  • The Afterschool Program is offered for children kindergarten through age 12. Head Start and RCES Preschool students can join our preschool classes after school.
  • The RCES school bus takes the children directly to CCLC. Before-school “breakfast club” care is also available with busing to RCES.
  • Enroll your child from one to five days per week. Scholarships available.
  • Children enrolled in CCLC’s afterschool (and CCLC alumni) can come to CCLC during snow days and other unscheduled days off, delayed openings, or early dismissal from RCES.
