|About||RCA strives to build confident, respectful, responsible leaders and lifelong learners in a licensed setting of very low teacher to student ratio of 1:3|
At “Redmond Children’s Academy (RCA)” we strive to build confident leaders and life long learners by helping them build their social, emotional, cognitive, and creative skills while emphasizing and instilling in them their core values like respect, patience, and independence.
RCA’s program brings together a unique combination of strengths from both the self-paced Montessori methodology and the traditional learning. Montessori materials and practices fulfill a kid’s innate need to touch, to see, to hear, to smell and to explore and in the process strengthen their fine motor control, eye and hand coordination, focus, concentration, and attention to detail. While the Montessori materials and practices introduce students to everyday practical life, math, and language concepts, our traditional learning methodology prepares them for their next phase of their academic life through their worksheet/workbook activities.
At RCA, the teacher learns about each student’s interests, learning style, and temperament, through careful observation. The teacher understands the student’s developmental needs, and is receptive to her/his “sensitive periods,” and introduce new concepts or skills when she/he is most ready to learn them. When the teacher observes that the student has mastered a concept or skill, the students get introduced to new lessons that become increasingly complex and abstract.
RCA’s curriculum has been carefully crafted by experienced teachers with a goal of providing a nurturing environment that prepares your child for a successful educational, emotional, and social foundation by building into your child a sense of confidence and mastering them in their fundamental concepts like practical life, sensorial development, team work, leadership, math, science and language.
