Building a better future for your children

What people say about us...

My son loves going to RTEEC. He has been there for 5 years. Not only has he developed great life skills but also valuable friendships with both his teachers and other children.     Lisa K

I was so pleased when I discovered RTEEC.
Finally, a childcare centre that's not made of plastic and fake grass! My daughter gets to learn in a playground which is full of natural textures: trees, grass, sand, dirt and water. She grows vegetables and picks fruits, all while learning to feed and water the gardens too. She knows how important recycling is, as well as how the rain gets into the water tanks so she can water the vegetables! Thank you RTEEC!                                                                          - Ann B

RTEEC has a friendly, 'big-family' type of environment - my children love it!                               - Simon 

I'm happy that I was able to return to work, knowing that my baby boy was in good hands. Thanks again to the lovely staff - you've made all the difference                                                           - Suzzane

THE HAND HOLDER ~ A Tribute to Childcare Providers

There is no job more important than yours,
no job anywhere else in the land.
Your are the keepers of the future:
you hold the smallest of hands.

Into your care you are trusted
to nurture and care for the young,
and for all of your everyday heroics,
your talents and skills go unsung.

You wipe tears from the eyes of the injured.
You rock babies brand new in your arms.
You encourage the shy and unsure child.
You make sure they are safe from all harm.

You foster the bonds of friendships,
letting no child go away mad.
You respect and you honor their emotions.
You give hugs to each child when they're sad.

You have more impact than does a professor,
a child's mind is molded by four;
so whatever you lay on the table
is whatever that child will explore.

Give each child the tools for adventure,
let them be artists and writers and more;
let them fly in the wind and dance on the stars
and build castles of sand on the shore.

It is true that you don't make much money
and you don't get a whole lot of praise,
but when one small child says, "I love you,"
you're reminded of how this job pays.
