Steve & Rhonda Williamson

 

Steve & Rhonda met in 1988 and were married in 1991.  They have a son, Kyle, who was born in 1992.  After being unable to find quality care for their son, Rhonda decided to open her own small daycare in her home.  Shortly thereafter, they were given the news that Rhonda could not have any more children.  Though devastated, she looked at it like she would take care of other children as if they were her own.  Steve, being a plumber at the time, decided he wanted to do child care with her.  He wanted to help raise his son day to day and not be the absentee father.

They opened R House Child Care Center in a little blue "school house", in 1994 in Meridian.  After 7 years, Rhonda craved "more babies", as she puts it.  They purchased Wee Care Day Care in November 2000.  The day after Thanksgiving. 

It's been almost 24 years since R House first existed and they haven't looked back.... not even for a moment.  Children are their lives AND their passion.

 

Steve...

has a degree in Mechanical Drafting and spent his time prior to childcare being a plumber. His primary roles at R House are accounting, payroll, maintenance as well as being the best “cheffer” in the world.   He enjoys playing with the kids (honestly he loves BEING a kid!). His hobbies are cars, football, motorcycles, music, fishing, boating, riding his Harley and camping.  He loves doing yard work and hanging out at home in the yard with all their dogs.

Rhonda...

has a degree in child development, as well as psychology. Her primary roles are education, staffing, enrollment and management.  While starting out in social work, she changed lanes into the business world.  When it became impossible to find care that met their standards for their son she decided to start her own child care. She loves to teach, plan and mentor parents and younger teachers. Personal time is spent in the mountains, camping, fishing, spending time with her son Kyle, riding her horse Buster and playing with her huskies, Bella, Lobo, Katie & Misti. Her passion is, was and always will be children.
