About the Provider

Description: RCMA provides quality child care and early education for children of migrant farm workers and rural, low-income families throughout Florida. RCMA was founded Oct. 1, 1965, by Mennonite Church volunteers in the Redlands farming area of southern Miami-Dade County to provide a safe, nurturing environment for children while their parents worked in the fields. This provides security for the parents, knowing their cultures are respected while their children are being prepared to enter school. For the children, it imparts the strengths of both their own ethnic origins and those of the diverse society they are joining. Overseeing RCMA is a volunteer Board of Directors, drawn from the geographic regions where RCMA operates and the constituencies served.
