The ROC provides a safe, nurturing environment filled with tons of fun filled activities but it does more than that. It instills in our children upstanding values such as honesty, kindness, empathy, compassion and generosity. We have watched our children grow in so many ways while attending the ROC program. They have gained confidence in themselves while at the same time becoming more caring towards others. Every Wednesday afternoon our children come off the school bus just itching to get over to the ROC. Every Wednesday evening they fly out of the doors at the ROC with huge smiles on their faces and great stories to share about what they did that evening.Jennifer Young
