Reston Community Center
Things to do in October for kids
Infant –12 years old!
There is so much fun for kids at Reston Community Center this fall. We have classes and events to get you moving, keep you swimming and celebrate the spooky season. Two new programs this October are RCC Preschool Prep, a free class that gives parents and kids ages 3 and 4 the tools they need for school readiness, and Boo at the Pool, where children can celebrate Halloween by diving for treats and treasures at the Terry L. Smith Aquatics Center at RCC Hunters Woods.

PLAY (Playing, Learning and Achieving Youth) is RCC's monthly update of youth programs and events aimed at keeping young people engaged and energized. Our goal is to help make family life easier by providing busy Reston parents with meaningful community recreation, leisure and learning experiences for their children.
