RCLS's school-age care program, Stepping Stones, is available before and after school and on non-school weekdays. Post is an additional after-school offering for students in grades 4-8.  

Stepping Stones

RCLS School Age Care (Stepping Stones) provides developmentally appropriate activities and offers time for children to make many of their own activity choices. Some of these activities include:

  • Manipulative toys
  • Art/Media
  • Religious Concepts
  • Science Concepts
  • Dramatic Play
  • Building/Lego Center
  • Indoor/Outdoor play
  • Homework Area


POST provides academic assistance to students in a closely monitored, quiet environment.

Students attending POST are provided a snack from 2:50 – 3:00 pm. Students are given opportunities to complete homework and to read silently for a minimum of 30 minutes in a quiet, supervised environment. Assistance with homework assignments will be available. Students that have completed their homework and have read silently for 30 minutes may play board games and utilize electronic devices such as Chromebooks and iPads. Although POST instructor will provide suggestions, when a student finishes her/his homework (or if a student does not have any homework on a given day) and has completed the reading requirement, the student is responsible for engaging in a quiet activity that is not disruptive to others.
