RECP has far exceeded my expectations. When I enrolled my first child at RECP, I was under a misimpression that RECP was just a daycare facility. I soon learned that while it is, in part, a daycare (the teachers and staff at RECP truly care for my kids), it is so much more.
RECP’s preschool program rivals any preschool in the City. But, the learning is not limited to just the preschool-aged kids. Each class has an age appropriate curriculum, where the kids learn relevant developmental, educational and social skills. The structured lessons are mixed with a wide variety of other activities, such as reading, singing, arts and crafts, cooking classes, P.E. with Coach Dave, nature walks, and even Spanish lessons. (At 3 ½, my son came home from school one day and sang “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” in perfect Spanish!) There is also plenty of time for free play.
RECP is a place for me to take my kids where I know that they will be safe. In additional, I know that they are spending their day with exceptional teachers who truly care about them and that they are learning the foundational skills to help them succeed in the years to come. However, perhaps the ultimate testament for RECP is that my kids can’t wait to go to school each morning.
