Roseville Community Preschool began over sixty years ago when a group of women formed a Mother’s Playgroup utilizing the original office of the Placer County Fairgrounds. What started as an empty shell of a building and a small play yard over the years sprouted into a vibrant early childhood center.
Over the years, RCP gained international recognition as a model preschool through their work guided by our original Teacher and Director, Bev Bos. Bev was active in the school until her death in 2016. Though deeply missed, we are proud to carry on her legacy and ensure that as many children as we can reach have the ability to truly play.
It is our firm belief that the role of the adults is to establish the play environment and provide guidance, understanding that young children learn best though self-directed, uninterrupted play.
Learning involves all of the senses.
Children need to move, to touch, to hold, to take things apart, to rearrange, experiment, deconstruct, reconstruct, imagine, talk out loud, and to play – which is “the single most significant factor in determining our success and happiness.” (Stuart Brown)
