Getting Your Child Into the Right Private Preschool or School for Toddlers

Parents looking to get their children into a private preschool or a school for toddlers know just how daunting the task is. The forms, the selectivity, the waiting – it can become very overwhelming, especially now that the application deadline is approaching. You wouldn’t expect that finding a school for 3 and 4 year olds would be as difficult as getting into an Ivy League University, but it often seems that way.

Don’t get discouraged! There are some great private preschool options that you may not even have thought about. River School for example is one of the few schools for toddlers and 3 and 4 year olds that offers rolling admissions. We don’t have deadlines, and we certainly don’t want to cause you any undue stress. With River School you are able to take a tour, fill out an application, and have your child start as early as the next day!
