RCMA offers free childcare and VPK that provide dual language early childhood education beyond daycare in a safe, loving environment. RCMA also operates two, free K-8 charter schools with three more planned.
RCMA began in Dade County in 1965.
The present area has four Child Development Centers located in Miami-Dade County. Almost 300 children ages 6 weeks to 11 years of age are served through Early Head Start, Migrant Head Start and School Readiness. Children with disabilities are mainstreamed into age-appropriate classrooms.
Families are offered opportunities to grow and learn, and are an integral part of decision making in centers. Ongoing training for teachers and family support staff is provided.
Thanks to many community partners, emergency needs of families are also addressed. More resources continue to be needed to expand services to families and their children.
