What River School Parents Say
We have seen our son grow and develop in a warm, safe, educational, and enjoyable environment and this is something every family would like to provide as a daily setting for their child. Not only did we feel comfortable leaving our son in the school’s care, but we have also been able to always relate our concerns to both teachers and administrative staff. The school was very helpful in finding information and applying for private schools – a very demanding process for New York City, which was completely unfamiliar to us.
— Gergana & Philippe
The facilities at River School rival that of the best preschools in the city. The classes are immaculately clean and well-kept, the daily programs are creative and inspiring, materials are abundant, and the educational atmosphere is sophisticated and fun. My children learned more than I could have imagined – and enjoyed the process.
“We’ve been blown away by our experience at the River School Newport. Such a caring and experienced staff! They are really great about telling us how he’s doing and working with us to help him grow. Our 17 month old son is thriving in the older infant classroom (Fishies). We love that there is a playground on-site, attached to the building and there’s an off-street area to pull up for drop-off and pick-up. A really lovely play-based learning environment! Worth every penny!”
Thank you for being such a wonderful influence on our son. The atmosphere is stimulating, safe and fun, and he came home every day energized, inspired, and happy. We, as parents, always felt secure and fortunate that he was there. What a terrific place to send a child!

The school and teachers are a loving, wonderful second family. I am so lucky that my son has had such a rich foundation during these most important formative years. I highly recommend this school to anyone who wants to enlighten and enrich their child’s daily experiences and as a result have a happy and inquisitive child!
