R'club is a wonderful place to send my child. It is more than just a day care. They teach them everything from the alphabet to manners. My daughter is polite and has respect for other children and adults. The teachers are genuine and caring. From Infant to VPK, each teacher knows my childs name and interacts with them on a daily basis. It really is like a family.

I love, love, love my R Club. My son and twin girls have been going there since they were babies and now they are 6 and 5. I could not ask for better staff there along with the director Jill Trumbill. Jill is very understanding, caring and awesome with the kids. If I have any issues regarding my children I know I can talk to any of the staff there and I feel comfortable talking to them. They have watched all my children grow up and have left a lasting impression on my heart and my children. I will be sad next year when the twins start kindergarten and we leave R Club. My kids love the staff there and talk about them even when we are at home and they always want to get doughnuts for the staff. I can express the gratitude I have for R Club in words because there is not one to express it. I love R Club.

R'Club has been a real blessing for our family. Without their services my son would not have been able to attend the school he is in now for their full time gifted education program. He would have had to attend our neighborhood school which does not have R'Club and would have had absolutely no before or after schol supervision. The staff at R'Club is fantastic. They teach the kids respect, responsibilty, and caring. They provide a structured environment with activites as well as time to do their homework. They encourage them to make great choices and make friend with their fellow classmates. All of the staff members know every child by their first name which helps them connect with the kids. I have never ever come in at any time and witnesses kids misbehaving. This alone tells me that the staff members really have a handle on their jobs and how to interact with all of their students. I am so pleased with how well this has been going for my son as he is in middle school and this year is his first experience at having to attend a child care program before or after school.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

that I how see how happy my son is and that he looks forward to the time and acivites everyday in R'Club. He is making alot of new friends and really enjoys the overall experience. I can't say enough positive things about R'Club!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

not make any changes to the location that my son attends. They are awesome! We pay the full price tuition and I feel that the fees are very affordable.

R'Club has been essential for my household. My daughter enjoys her time at R'Club. Her grandparents sometimes pick her up early and she gets upset because she does not want to miss out on the fun opportunities!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Personal assistance with child care and opportunities for growth (socially, academically, and mentally).

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Invite tutors to assist students with homework.
