Over the five years in RDCA, my children are happy! This is the biggest measure my wife and I use in evaluating the choices we have made for our children. My wife and I have easy access to administrators and teachers. Any questions or concerns are addressed immediately. We trust in the system and the people with whom we leave our most treasured possessions: Our children.


“For us, RDCA is a family affair! My husband, brother, and I both worked for RDCA for several years and my mother in law is currently an Assistant Director at one of the school-age programs.  Needless to say, when we started to look for childcare, we knew exactly where to turn!

Our daughter started at RDCA Bel-Pre when she turned two in January 2020. Three months later, COVID-19 forced the center to shut down. During the shutdown, the staff worked hard to maintain the relationships they’d built with the children by scheduling twice weekly zoom calls to read stories, play games, and sing songs.

We thought long and hard about whether to send our daughter back when the center re-opened. Like many parents, we felt guilty about the amount of screen time our daughter was exposed to while we tried to work two very demanding jobs from home. We are also very conscious of the current health crisis and concerned about the health and well-being of our immediate family.

We ended up re-enrolling our daughter at the Bel Pre location in September 2020 and have been very happy with our decision. RDCA has very stringent COVID-19 safety protocols in place. The staff uses the Brightwheel app to send updates throughout the day and provides the parents with a seamless (and contactless!) check-in/check-out procedure. Ms. Taishia and Ms. Xiomara are working tirelessly to keep the kids safe and make this very uncertain time as normal as possible for our now almost three-year-old! Thank you, RDCA. You are a working parent’s dream!”


Our experience over the past three and a half years of using RDCA is exemplary. My son’s kindergarten teacher said it best when she told me, his first week of school, “I can always tell the kids that come from RDCA because they’re prepared, not only academically, but socially. They listen, behave, and they have fun.”  That’s the core of what RDCA does for me and our community.
