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.
The need for quality child care was lacking in rural Immokalee which lead to the opening of Farmworker Village B in 1979. The now combined Collier and Lee county area has flourished into 7 Child Development Centers, 19 Family Child Care Homes, and the Immokalee Community Academy.
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.
