Non-Profit Spotlight: Rock Rose Village School

Our community is full of incredible people and organizations out making a difference for others! In this month’s Non-Profit Spotlight we’d like to recognize The Rock Rose School for Creative Learning!

Rock Rose Village School began in 2006 as a small study group of parents and teachers committed to helping their children develop using the latest brain research. They recognized the need to reach more children, so the group became a non-profit parent-child program in Escondido and a parent co-op kindergarten in Ramona.

Wanting a more permanent location in 2009, they opened their doors with their first Kindergarten and Parent-Child classes located in Fallbrook with a room and outside play area — The Hilltop Center. They began to outgrow the Hilltop Center in Fallbrook and during the summer of 2013, moved to The Creekside Plaza. This new location gave the children more outdoor space and a charming place to call their school. During the summer of 2019, they moved to a temporary building while they worked on building a new and permanent home in which they will be moving to in the summer of 2021!

We asked Board President and Founder, Bethany Chaffin, how COVID has affected their non-profit, and here is what she had to say:

COVID has been very hard on our program. We remained opened throughout the entire pandemic in order to support essential workers and families who needed to report to work each day. We had to furlough a few of our employees in order to reduce the number of adults to students as was recommended by the CDC. This has been extremely hard on our teachers who rely on their aides in order to help with the children. With the reduction of students, our income has reduced substantially while our overhead and the needed PPE have increased. It has been a very hard year and we look forward to when we can return to our normal operations.

The initial goals of the non-profit were to provide an early childhood program that embodied a play-based and developmentally appropriate method of educating the child through their head, heart, and hands. The Rock Rose Village School has continued with that goal over the past 15 years and hopes to continue it for many more to years to come.

They work with the YMCA and the CDA in order to help provide an affordable and quality program to families who typically would not be able to afford a Waldorf-Inspired early childhood program. They also offer annual Harvest Festivals and parenting events that are open to the wider community. Rock Rose Village School works with programs that allow a good portion of their families to attend for a very little amount. Some families end up not paying anything because of the partnership they have with support programs!
