River School was founded in 1989 by Dr. Richard A. Kresch, M.D., a child psychiatrist who practiced and taught at the Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center in New York City.
Under his leadership, River School was designed to provide children with the best possible start in life, in a nurturing, yet stimulating environment that respects their individuality. Throughout the past 28 years, our child care and preschool program has helped numerous children build a strong foundation for learning and academic success.
With four locations in both the New Jersey and Manhattan areas, River School provides a positive early childhood experience and prepares young children for the challenges of elementary school and beyond.
River School joined the Bright Horizons® family in 2016 and remains one of New York and New Jersey’s most dependable early childhood education programs.
