Children are born eager to learn, whether they are 2 months old or 5 years old or any age in between. As educators and caregivers our role is to provide an environment where children are encouraged to explore and be curious; where they feel safe and loved; where they can learn about their emotions and gain social skills.
Every class at River School has at least a Head Teacher and a Co-Teacher. Our highly qualified staff guide the children through activities that are appropriate to their interests and developmental readiness. Programs are planned with built-in flexibility to meet the needs of the individual child.
At River School we believe that children learn from everyone, a teacher, a friend’s parent or another child. With each encounter the children benefit from the interaction. Our goal is to support each child’s sense of wonder and joy and desire to explore the world and people around them. As the children learn to express themselves in a myriad of ways, through a curriculum that is instigated by the teachers and the children and often by the interplay between them, the children achieve their greatest potential and emerge with strong self-confidence and self-esteem, ready to meet the challenges before them.
