What an awesome staff. Caring, kind and excited about what they do. My boys all loved their time at RCCK. They miss everybody and my oldest has been out of there for 3 years. The youngest just finished up and wants to go back. They have one more than the recommended number of staff most of the time and they take the time to get to know the kids and their families.

My child thoroughly enjoys time at RCCK and comes home very happy. The teachers are just wonderful! They take the time to get to know the kids, they always have a range of activities set up, they are encouraging and positive towards the children and they instill social skills (like general manners and table/eating manners) as well as age-appropriate learning. We like that they have 'Mat Time' and sit down at tables to eat together. We all love the learning stories that come home and my child feels very comfortable there, which is peace of mind for me!

OMG the best kindergarten facility around by far. The teachers are absolutely magnificent and I feel they look after the children as they do their own. You are made to feel part of their family which I think is awesome. I have never had to worry about my children not being looked after as I know they are a fantastic team. Thanks.

For a mum who didn't want her child in care I find it perfect! All the teachers are so friendly! They have welcomed myself and my daughter with open arms. We love the learning stories we receive and the fact we can share them with family not in town is awesome. There is always great activities set up for the kids inside and out. My daughter absolutely loves her time at rcck!
