• Program Philosophy
     
    RCSD believes in building a working partnership with parents, family and the community to provide a child development program that nurtures a healthy sense of self-worth, fosters development of skills in all developmental domains, encourages the development of independence, and promotes acceptance of diversity. We offer a play-based program where children learn through engaging with teachers, parents, materials and hands-on activities. Early literacy and math skills, as well as learning strategies necessary for later school success are taught through both teacher-planned and child-initiated curricula.

    Curriculum
     
    The Child Development Centers provide an age-appropriate educational program that fosters skill development in the cognitive, language, social, emotional, and physical domains. Our child-centered approach and environment encourage exploration, creativity, and problem-solving where children learn how to learn and achieve kindergarten readiness. Curriculum content is aligned with kindergarten standards and includes early literacy, math, science and creative arts activities. Parents are informed regularly about their children’s developmental progress and are encouraged to support learning at home.
