welcoming the fall at river school

The summer is winding down, and River School is excited to welcome new families to our community. River School enrolls children year round, who are 2 months old through 5 years old. New children are accepted on an ongoing basis throughout the year, as space becomes available. Apply using the application form for the school you are interested in, and either drop it off at River School, or send it to us by email, fax or snail mail.


Butterfly Project

Many of the River School children have had some new friends visit their classrooms. In our school for toddlers, one of our toddler classes were eager to see their caterpillars turn into butterflies!

Easter Egg Hunt

All River School children had a wonderful time hunting for Easter Eggs at River School.  Infants, toddlers and preschoolers all searched for eggs filled with treats to put in their special homemade Easter baskets while many of their parents joined in the fun.




River School Celebrates Earth Day

To celebrate Earth Day, River School classrooms decided to use recycled materials to create beautiful artwork!  As a top school for toddlers, River School strives to make learning a fun experience. The classrooms focused on an ocean and beach scene, and discussed the importance of keeping our Earth clean from litter and garbage.

castleThe Giraffes started their castle exploration in November by building castles using different materials such as blocks, Legos, dominoes, bottle caps, cups, and connectors. They continued exploring the outer structures, interior rooms, and various medieval titles such as blacksmith, lords, knights, jesters, and cooks.
