About our Philosophy



We offer connections between the school and parents/guardians; competence in academic, emotional and social areas; and consistent routines for children's optimal success. We work hard to instill character, positive values, integrity, moral commitment, and compassion in the children that participate in R Youth Team programs. We also offer:


Space and Furnishings

  • Indoor space with room arrangements which promote learning, recreational activities, relaxation, and comfort

  • Art decorations within each designated space that showcase the children's individual personalities 

  • Seasonal and cultural displays



  • Caring staff members that provide personalized interactions with each child, every day upon arrival and departure

  • Frequent staff communication with parents about child progress

  • 1/10 staff ratio (21+older, qualified staff with one aide)

  • Structured and appropriate discipline in accordance with each child's age

  • Encouragement for developing friendly relationships with peers

  • Positive staff relationship between the R Youth Team staff and your child's school 


Staff Development

  • Professional ongoing training in a wide variety of child related topics (special needs, social and emotional well being, activity implementation)
