Welcome to the River School Blog!
We asked our teachers at our Newport location one important question – what makes River School unique? Here are some of their answers.
Miss Mariana – River School gives children the opportunity to express themselves using their imagination. With guidance from teachers, the children explore in depth topics that the children show an interest towards. The children expand their creative minds with very little limitations. The River School provides protective guidance and similar routines for children to follow as they transition and grow between classes.
Miss Maria – 1) Teachers – The love, nurturing, and guidance they provide to help children learn and grow. The ability they have to work closely with families to better help the children. 2) Flexibility – River School has an amazing flexibility that they extend to families and staff. They are willing to work closely and individually to help in many situations, provide resources, and sometimes just a listening ear. 3) Curriculum – The curriculum encourages exploration and is child-interest-based, which promotes overall growth and development.
Miss Barbara – River School has a friendly atmosphere and nurturing teachers. Parents can observe the children and see how happy, and what fun they are having. River School has a wonderful open door policy and families are welcome (and encouraged!) to be involved in activities. Bottom line – fun and learning go hand-in-hand at River School.
