About Role Modeling:
The Role Modeling Approach (RMA) was developed to prepare children for kindergarten by providing them and their parents with weekly lessons that engage children where they are in their aptitudes, interests, and abilities. RMA begins with the idea that healthy adult-child attachments prime children for learning. As children develop trust and respect for their Role Models, their appetite for learning new skills and participating in new activities is stimulated.
