Philosophy & Approach

General School Mission

"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 diverse cultural values and acceptance. We offer a play-based program where children learn through their interactions with equipment, materials and other people. Pre-academic skills and concepts, as well as curiosity and learning strategies, necessary for later success in school, are taught through both teacher- planned and -guided and child-initiated activities.
