RCMA provides early care and education to Florida's most vulnerable children
Early care and Education
RCMA is the leading provider of early care and education in Florida. In Miami Dade RCMA cares for some 650 children from low income families in the South Dade county areas of Homestead and Florida City. The majority of RCMA families work in agriculture.
RCMA prides itself on its holistic approach to child care. Because stress at home can cause long-lasting damage to a child's educational outcomes, we offer services that assist the a child's entire family. We offer parenting skills workshops, immigration assistance and other types of support to parents of RCMA students. If a student has fewer obstacles to overcome at home, they are better able to concentrate on school work. Each RCMA area in the state, of which there are 13 around Florida, has at least one person and often more dedicated to family support.
