RADFORD, VA, January 20, 2016 – Radford Early Learning Center, a new high quality child care facility developed by Radford Child Development, Inc. and Rainbow Child Care Center, will be opening February 1st at 1511 Tyler Avenue in Radford. The center will provide high quality early childhood education to meet the needs of many families in Radford and surrounding communities.
“Giving children the opportunities to flourish in a nurturing and educational environment through daily play and carefully chosen activities is one of my top priorities,” said Rhonda Ekiss, Director at Radford Early Learning Center. “I am thrilled to work together in this state-of-the-art center where children will grow and develop into life-long learners.”
Radford Early Learning Center is the result of a multi-year cooperative effort by Radford Child Development, Radford University Foundation, Price-Williams Realty, and Rainbow Child Care Center. Four years ago Radford Child Development (RCD) Inc., a non-profit, launched an initiative to bring the highest quality child care and early education to the Radford area, allowing families to improve their lives through access to an outstanding facility and overall environment for their children. Radford University Foundation supported this initiative with a non-interest start-up loan of $300,000 and Price-Williams Realty built a state-of-the-art building for the center. RCD Inc. selected Rainbow Child Care Center for the quality education and nurturing philosophy that they bring to childcare and early childhood education.
“The creation of Radford Early Learning Center is the result of a cooperative, community-wide effort by many dedicated individuals and organizations in Radford. This center will have a long-lasting positive impact on children and their families and the entire Radford and NRV communities,” said Dr. Agida Manizade, president of Radford Child Development, Inc. “The Radford Early Learning Center is a solution for a community that is deserving of this level of quality, and shown the demand for services of this type. We’re delighted that this joint initiative is now about to become a reality for so many families in the Radford community. Our next priority is to raise scholarship funds so that all children can benefit from the center”
