We love this daycare centre, couldn't recommend it enough! It has a really homely feel, the staff are amazing and caring and the developmental activities for the kids are really well thought out and executed. The food for the kids is amazing and we really like the outdoor play areas. This is a not-for-profit centre not a chain, which we feel makes a difference. All money raised gets pumped back into the centre and it's been a childcare centre for 130 years!
Highly recommended, safe and affordable childcare in the heart of Richmond. We have been sending our daughter for the past couple of years and have seen a huge leap in her development and personality. Staff are fabulous, supportive and caring. Great social side and community spirit to the Kinder, with regular BBQs, social opportunities and fundraisers. I feel we made an excellent decision for both our child, and us as parents, first learning experience.
We switched from another local childcare and it was the best move we could have made. The sense of community and belonging is very highly regarded and practiced here, and the kids have blossomed. I can't recommend highly enough, my wife and I are rapt with RCK
We have been part of the RCK community for many years. I love the homely feel of the centre and the staff are fantastic. I really appreciate the fact that staff go out of their way each day to have a chat and share a story about my son's day when I pick him up!! A sign that they really care about the children in their care and their families.
We have been going to RCK for over 2 years with our son and he has loved it. We have our daughter who will start there soon. Community run centre and not for profit so is much cheaper than others. Educators really engaged with the kids and care for them.
Our daughter attends RCK, it is great. As a not-for-profit the focus is on quality care and education. The staff and educators are fantastic. There is a great community feel, we have meet a lot of parents in the area. Our daughter loves attending, is engaged and has developed so much already. Our second child is definitely going to RCK.
Terrific crèche and kindergarten with a strong focus on community. We are so happy to have our children attend crèche and kinder here and to be so connected with their learning and with the local community. Amazing educators and outdoor play spaces. Would highly recommend.
My daughter currently attends RCK, it has been the most comforting and positive experience for the both of us. The Educators genuinely care for the children and their families - and develop beautiful relationships with both. So much time and effort is spent planning their days - from playing to learning to the meals they receive. My daughter looks forward to attending each day and most days doesn't want to leave! I am so happy with our choice to attend RCK!
My son attends RCK and loves the educators. It is an amazing facility in the heart of Richmond. The centre has a great community of educators and parents. Being a not-for-profit organisation, the rates are less than commercial centres, with the focus being on engaging the best educators and providing the best facilities as opposed to profits.
Child oasis in the middle of Richmond where the staff put a real emphasis on community and friendship. I wouldn’t know half the people i do in Richmond if it wasn’t for this place and my kids love it.
We moved our daughter from a for-profit childcare centre to RCK at the start of 2017 and have been very happy with the care she has received since being accepted there. The best thing about RCK is the longevity of carers, there seemed to be carers resigning all the time at the old creche, at RCK she has had continued care from the same carers. I love that it's a not for profit organisation with a community feel.
Fantastic staff and fascilities.
“Best childcare centre in Richmond. Friendly and professional staff who are a pleasure to deal with. Has a great community and family aspect to it which both my kids love.”
