ReWA believes that all children should have the opportunity to succeed in school and beyond.

Often, refugee and immigrant parents feel disconnected from existing child care programs due to language, cultural, and religious barriers. Our Early Learning Center helps refugee and immigrant parents feel supported by providing childcare that breaks down language, cultural, and religious barriers. In ReWA’s classrooms, each child is encouraged to share their own culture and value other cultures different from their own.

The Early Learning Center offers the following

  • Qualified bilingual and bicultural staff
  • Small classroom environments for individualized learning
  • Strong literacy programs
  • Integrated, dual-language curriculum
  • Culturally-relevant, home-cooked hot meals
  • Supportive services through bilingual and bicultural Family Advocates
  • Free part-day childcare for qualifying families
  • NACCP Accreditation (National Accreditation Commission for Early Care and Education Programs)

Curriculum

Our “Soy Bilingue” curriculum creates a balanced support of home language and culture, while equipping children with necessary English skills for their transition to Kindergarten.

The “Create Curriculum” meets the social, emotional, physical, language, cognitive and literacy objectives for childhood learning and development using a play-based model.

Locations

  • Preschool on Beacon Hill, serving children 3 – 5 years old
  • Childcare at the Main Office, serving infants – 3 years old
