Founder Who We Are History Mission Program Goals





RCN's History


Round-The Clock Nursery Inc. (RCN), is a Non-Profit corporation whose mission is  to provide an educationally-focused, 24-hour, childcare and drop-off service that will enable parents with non-traditional work and educational schedules to pursue their career/educational goals, since existing childcare services do not meet the needs of a significant segment of New York's work force.




Rationale:


For example, many parents begin working before 9:00 AM and finish their workday after 5:00 PM. Some jobs require mandatory overtime and weekend work on a regular or irregular basis. Yet, most childcare services in New York  City serve only parents who work between 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM Monday through Fridays.


Moreover, while evening, overnight or weekend care may be available in some communities, those programs do not operate continuously. Consequently, in many cases, parents are forced to forego work or educational opportunities or adjust to numerous childcare providers in their attempt to meet their employment, educational and other life goals.















What Makes Us Different:


RCN was founded to address this service delivery gap. Our nursery is a  24 hours per day, 7 days per week childcare drop-off service that caters to parents who work in the day or evening. Our drop-off component serves as both an emergency back-up when parents' regular childcare arrangements fail and as a short-term childcare service to enable parents to run errands, take care of personal crisis, or just develop their own personal interests. We also provide service for vacationing parents.
