River School Warren is just across the street from our sister school, River School Exchange Place, at 254/256 Warren Street. Conveniently located in downtown Jersey City, it’s just two blocks from Harborside Financial District and is easy to get to via the Exchange Place and Grove Street PATH Stations, as well as the Exchange Place and Marin Light Rail Stations. We’re also a short walk from the Liberty Towers, 255 Grand, Hudson Green, Trump Towers, and 50 Columbus.

At our Warren location, we specialize in the care of infants through two-year-olds. And, in addition to our regular curriculum, we also offer enrichment and extracurricular activities for our infants and toddlers, such as:

  • Music Classes
  • Creative Movement Class
  • Pitter Patter Feet
  • Art Class – taught by a professional artist
  • Field Trips
  • Chess Lessons
  • Spanish Instruction
  • Piano Lessons

When children turn two-and-a-half, they move across the street to our Exchange Place location (251 Warren Street), where they’re immersed in our preschool and pre-kindergarten programs. And once your child is ready to move on to kindergarten, we’ll be there for your family every step of the way by providing advice, guidance, and support throughout the entire application and admissions process.
