River Valley Preschool Programs

The River Valley Preschool is a child-centered program devoted to meeting each child’s unique needs and focusing on the whole child. We believe it is important to provide a safe and nurturing setting in which to foster each child’s cognitive, speech and language, social, emotional, self-help and motor development. Learning is encouraged through selected play activities that are developmentally appropriate for each child. Skills are integrated across activities. The teacher serves as facilitator to guide children in their interactions with varied learning opportunities. Family involvement is critical to a child’s growth. Parents are partners in the development and provision of learning opportunities. Our overall goal is to foster in all of our children a positive sense of their self-worth and a belief in their ability to be independent individuals.
