RCKids Academy, a new borough preschool on Center Street, has a goal to teach all of its students both English and Spanish, all while providing a strong base of an education for children to grow. The Academy’s co-owners Ruth Castellanos and Carolina Caraballo say it was their dream to open an educational center that provides an environment where young children can acquire a second language.
“I love teaching because I believe the early years of education are the foundation that children need for lifelong learning,” explained Caraballo, who also serves as the School’s Director, “I am committed to provide a high-quality bilingual program that will benefit children and families.”
In its first school year, RCKids Academy has established a core curriculum that features strong art, gym, music and health programs. The school serves child from 2 ½ to 5 years old.
