Ensuring that all children are healthy and ready to learn is the goal of the Child Development program offered through BRCA. Head Start and Day Care programs are provided at 3 licensed centers. All of BRCA's child care centers are registered by the state of North Carolina and participate in the USDA Child Nutrition Program. All meals are provided by Grace Hospital.

BRCA's Child Development program encourages children to explore and experiment with their environment. Our centers provide age appropriate, open-ended activities to help children develop a positive sense of self worth. Children participate in activities fostering both independent play and group cooperation. Planned daily activities place emphasis on the actual learning process rather than the final result, allowing children to feel good not only about themselves, but also about the world around them.

Open and honest communication between teachers and parents is a crucial part of keeping the school/home relationship friendly and caring. Our open-door policy encourages parental visits and active participation. All teachers and staff members participate in regular training activities and are certified in first aid and CPR. All teachers hold a two-year degree in early childhood education or related fields, and many have four-year degrees and teaching licenses.
