River School on Warren has been part of the community since September of 2000. In 2014 we expanded our location and we are now conveniently located at 251 and 254 Warren Street in downtown Jersey City, near the Exchange Place and Grove Street PATH Stations and the Exchange Place and Marin Light Rail Stations. It’s also just two blocks from the Harborside Financial District and close to Liberty Towers, 255 Grand, Hudson Green, Trump Towers, and 50 Columbus.

Our full-day private programs for Infants, Toddlers, Twos, Preschool and PreK make River School on Warren a top Jersey City preschool. And, in addition to our regular curriculum, we also offer an exciting enrichment and extracurricular activities and Summer Camp program, such as:

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

We care about your child’s education journey, and when he or she is ready to move on to kindergarten, we’ll guide you through the application and admissions process and give your family the advice and support you need.
