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).
