"Like most parents, I am very particular about who cares for my children. I also want the space to be inviting and clean. I toured many different daycare centres but it was RHCC that checked all the boxes for me! The staff are all wonderful, from office staff to teachers. My child's teacher was so caring and gentle and just so hard working. There were always different activities being set up, plus lovely toys, crafts, baking and outdoor play. And of course, the office staff were also very kind and just really nice people. There was no drama, everyone worked together to care for the children, it was like a little family. Last but not least, my daughter loved it there! She was seldom sad when I left and when I came to pick her up, she would be happy to see me but also happy to continue playing. Thank you everyone at RHCC!" - Justine V. October 2020
