Welcome to the Early Childhood Services Department

Choosing a high-quality early childhood education program is one of the most important decisions parents or guardians can make for their young children. As you consider your decision, we encourage you to choose one of our RCS Early Childhood Programs. Our learning environment provides opportunities for preschool-age children through 12 years of age to discover, investigate, grow and begin the journey of lifelong learning. Our extensive Early Childhood programs include tuition-based programs for Preschool, Discovery Preschool/Child Care, and School-Age Care (SACC). We also offer free preschool for families that meet eligibility requirements through the Great Start Readiness Program (GSRP).


Coming April 1, 2024


Aug 7, 2023

We are now taking students on a waitlist for SACC for the following schools:

  1. Hevel Elementary School
  2. Indian Hills Elementary School (this SACC program is housed at Hevel Elementary School)
  3. Amanda Moore Elementary School

Availability for SACC below:

  1. Hamilton-Parson's Elementary has a couple openings in morning and afternoon available. 
  2. Washington Elementary has openings in the morning and afternoon available.  

As we hire more staff for these sites, we will allow children on the waitlist in. Child's registration paperwork must be turned in to Croswell, in order for the child to be on the waitlist.  Thank you.
