RANDOLPH SCHOOL-AGE CARE
Randolph School-Age Care (RSAC) is a fee-based program of Randolph Township Schools operated by the Randolph Community School. RSAC programs began in 1984 under the direction of the Randolph Community School and are governed by the Randolph Township Board of Education. RSAC provides quality care for children in grades kindergarten through fifth. All programs offer enriching, nurturing care for children during out-of school hours between 7:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. Choose the program and schedule that is right for you (see tabs on left for more detailed information):
EarlyBirds -- 7 a.m. to the start of school;
ASK (AfterSchool Kids) -- school dismissal to 6 p.m.
In all RSAC programs, experienced and qualified staff provide stimulating activities to promote each child's physical, social, emotional, and intellectual growth. RSAC's goal is to help children reach their potential by improving self-esteem and acquiring the skills needed for cooperation and problem solving. Developmentally appropriate, appealing activities are made available as the children's interests and needs guide the selection of activities. Homework time, healthy snacks, outdoor play, indoor organized games, crafts, cooking, science, nature explorations and special guest visitations are just a few of the activities that are part of our programs.

This is our last few weeks in the care of the ASK program. Both my boys, went to Early Birds and ASK at Center Grove beginning in Kindergarten! My youngest, finishes ASK in June as he moves onto RMS. I want to thank you for the teams that you have in place to care for the children. Overall, both boys had a wonderful experience at ASK and EB. The staff helped them set up good homework skills, fair play skills and social interaction. As a working parent, the services you provide are invaluable. I always knew my boys were in good hands, and it helped me to worry a little less, and lessen some of the “working mom guilt”. Ms. Ursula, is fair, firm and a lovely woman. I never doubled that she would be fair with the kids, but also hold them accountable. I appreciate her leadership in the programs. So, thank you for what you do. And please thank your staff for us."
