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 DeSoto County in 1975 with one center.
The area now has grown to 3 Child Development Centers located in Arcadia and Nocatee. Over 198 children ages 6 weeks to five years of age are served. 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.
