    School Age Care (SAC)
    Grades K-3

    Before & after school care

    We provide a high quality childcare with a variety of fun, stimulating, and enriching opportunities for school-age children in a safe environment. We create meaningful experiences for children that complement the school day.

    During the school year, childcare services are offered at all elementary schools in the Forest Lake Area School District. School Age Care (SAC) provides care before and after school to children. SAC is also available to enrolled participants on most non-school days at a limited number of sites. 

    Grades 4-6

    Before & after school care

    Sonic is a before and after school care program for fourth through sixth grade children, serving all elementary schools. The Sonic program allows more independence to 4-6 graders during the school year and to 4-7 graders in the summer. Breakout time depends on the number of older students enrolled at each location. Students have an opportunity to help plan program activities and clubs, make choices, take active leadership roles and participate in service learning projects.


    Steps Ahead Childcare  
    Ages 3-5

    Beginning August 24, 2019, we will no longer offer Steps Ahead, our age 3-5 year old childcare program. Community Education will continue to offer Early Childhood preschool classes, and will continue to provide before/after school childcare for both enrolled Little Rangers Preschool 4-5 year olds and elementary-age students.
