Roxbury Community School BASES - About Us

  • About Us:

    The Roxbury Community School Before and After School Enrichment Services (RCS BASES) program operates under the auspices of the Roxbury Township Board of Education through the Roxbury Community School and includes a before and after school childcare program called BASES that provides quality care and enrichment for the K-6 children enrolled in the Roxbury Township School District.

    RCS BASES is a before and after-school care enrichment program designed to provide healthy physical and academic activities, social and emotional development, and artistic opportunities for students. All of the programs operate on a child-centered philosophy. Through child-directed and staff-planned activities, children can express themselves creatively, foster appropriate interactions, learn, and grow. RCS BASES is a fun, interactive learning environment. The specific needs and interests of the children are explored in order to develop programming that is engaging and developmentally appropriate. Your child will not only be in good hands; he/she will also be making good use of that valuable period called out-of-school time.

    Our Staff:

    RCS BASES staff, as responsible caregivers, will enhance children's days. We will provide enjoyable experiences in a safe and caring environment. All RCS BASES staff are employees of the Roxbury Township Board of Education through the Roxbury Community School who are subject to a criminal background check and are fingerprinted. All BASES staff also participate in a staff orientation, which covers topics such as Child Growth and Development, Positive Discipline Techniques, Health and Safety Procedures, and Child Abuse Prevention. At least one staff member at each of the B.A.S.E.S. sites is trained in First Aid, CPR/AED, and Epi-Pen.


    Morning and Afternoon B.A.S.E.S. occur in the K-4 Roxbury Elementary Schools for Grades K-6. This is subject to change as needed based on enrollment. School location information.
