Richmond Hill Children’s Center

Richmond Hill Children’s Center (RHCC) is the original,  family owned and operated children’s center. We are a privately run facility. We have been offering childcare and summer programs to the Staten Island Community since 2004, offering a personal touch that isn’t possible for institutionally run facilities. In addition, RHCC has been an NYC DOE authorized free Pre-K for All Program provider since 2008.

Our mission is to provide the opportunities necessary for our students to have fun and make the most of their skills in a safe and secure environment. At RHCC, we believe that the preschool years are the most impressionable time in a child’s life. Therefore, it is important to use this developmental period as the foundation that will help them to succeed in later school years and throughout their lives. Richmond Hill Children’s Center is not a franchise. Our private owners are present, onsite, day to day at our only location.

Our curriculum is designed to stimulate healthy growth in all areas of a child’s development. We strive to produce a well-rounded child, stressing independence, self-reliance, and individuality thereby fostering high self-esteem. The curriculum is also devised to insure that each child’s readiness skills are stimulated and they are exposed to the skills necessary to succeed academically.

Our nurturing classroom environment helps the children to build friendships, develop turn taking skills, and promote sharing and cooperative play. Richmond Hill Children’s Center works closely with the families as we strongly believe that parent involvement and cooperation is vital to their child’s success.
