Message from the Director of Early Childhood Education

Our Preschool Child Care Center proudly embraces the Reggio Emilia philosophy of early childhood learning–-where joyful play and high-quality projects spark creativity, collaboration, and knowledge.

Open 7:30 a.m.-6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, our program is a Maryland State Certified Preschool, within a fully-accredited AIMS school; available part-time or full-time for girls and boys ages 3 and 4.

Imagine a day at RPCS, where your child...

  • Arrives as early as 7:30 a.m.
  • Travels to the classroom with 5th grade buddies, who help arrange coats and backpacks then read or recite poetry until morning activities begin at 8:00 a.m.
  • Names and nurtures baby chicks emerging from the warmth of classroom-incubated eggs; and, later, returns the chicks to their hens
  • Explores his/her curiosity in the preschool atelier (AKA wildly-creative studio)
  • Rides on a school bus to meet local farmers and animals
  • Attends an 8th grade play performed entirely in Spanish
  • Treks through the backwoods busily taking pictures, gathering natural materials and recording observations
  • Eats lunch in the outdoor classroom; then naps indoors to refresh
  • Dictates and directs a short story with classmates as the cast of characters
  • Enjoys one of many “special” classes, such as art, dance, gym, library, music and foreign language
  • Connects with 12th-grade AP students who study Piaget and observe his theories in action during the preschool day
  • Bubbles with adventuresome stories at 12:30 p.m. or 3:00 p.m. dismissal
  • Stays as late as 6:00 p.m.

Where else can you share in a renowned preschool experience that brings your little one such JOY each day?
