From Our Website
We view your child's time at RCC as a partnership between staff and families. In a recent survey of parents, 100% of respondents answered that they feel welcome and comfortable at RCC. The RCC staff strives to understand the needs of parents as well as children, and to treat parents with respect and consideration. Families are encouraged to become actively involved with their children's care. From daily communications with teachers to involvement in the Parent Group, we strive to help you stay informed and engaged.
The experience and professionalism of RCC's staff sets us apart from other child care programs. Each classroom is led by a degreed teacher and support staff, which may include assistant teachers and aides. Our direct care staff members have on average eight years experience working in early childhood or child development programs. The majority of our teachers hold degrees and certificates in Early Childhood Education, Elementary Education, Special Education and other related fields. RCC supports the ongoing professional development of our staff by providing specialized early childhood training throughout the year.
RCC offers a range of programs for infants through school-age children, geared toward children's care, social and cognitive development, educational needs, and interests. The developmentally appropriate curriculum includes time for active and quiet play, teacher-initiated and child-initiated activities, as well as indoor and outdoor activities daily. Language and literacy, math, science, art, and music experiences are planned for and included regularly. The curriculum for RCC's programs is based on the High/Scope educational approach, which centers on active learning.
Families interested in enrolling in RCC are encouraged to submit an enrollment application early as space in RCC's high-quality early education programs is limited. There is no fee due with your application (registration fees are due only when your spot has been confirmed and accepted).
