We have been part of the RDCA family since our youngest was a toddler, and our oldest was in preschool at the Northwest campus. They are now both school-age and attend the RDCA Ashburton program. I have been impressed with how RDCA (Northwest and Ashburton locations) navigated the uncertainties with the pandemic. My initial hesitation in sending our youngest back to Northwest for pre-school in the Fall of 2020 dissolved after speaking with center director, Julie. It was clear that she was doing everything in her power to keep the kids and teachers as safe as possible given the circumstances. Our preschooler, though she regressed a bit during the pandemic, was back to her old self again within a few days of joining Ashburton as a kindergartener. RDCA Ashburton established a learning hub in the Fall of 2020 that served as a mental lifeline for our daughter while the public schools were still virtual. This gave my wife and I peace of mind. Having support during virtual learning and having friends around to play with during the downtimes was huge!
RDCA has allowed our family of two working parents to thrive and provides a nurturing and enriching environment for our girls.
