The River School
Opening Minds to a Lifetime of Joy and Learning


Preschool is an important building block in a child’s education. And at River School, our experienced educators help children take that big next step, offering comprehensive curriculum in all key areas: literacy, mathematics, science, social-emotional development, physical development, and the arts.

Teachers encourage preschoolers to explore and be curious, ask questions, discuss conflicts, and learn how to negotiate with their peers. Additionally, we help children learn the importance of physical activity by focusing on motor development, growing healthy bodies, and building self-esteem. And we give them the opportunity to explore the outdoors on the playground and through field trips to new and different places.

Because there’s much to be explored outside our school, we leave room in our schedule for many special seasonal activities such as soccer, swimming, theatrical performances, and family gatherings. Finally, we embrace the vibrant communities around us and invite guests in to share information, ideas, and different points of view on a variety of subjects. And it’s all among our teachers who make children feel safe, loved, and ready for that next step.

With preschool completed, children move into the pre-kindergarten program – the final step to prepare them for kindergarten!

Our graduates have been accepted at some of the most prestigious kindergarten programs in the area.
