About River Academy

Boise's Premiere State of the Art Preschool & Learning Center

River Academy Preschool and Learning Center was built in response to the need in our community for high quality Early Childhood Education for young children. We want to ensure the best possible educational experience for your children while maintaining an environment of stability, safety, care, exploration and fun. We believe these to be essential elements in encouraging developmental growth educationally, cognitively, physically, mentally and emotionally as we address each learner individually and holistically.

River Academy operates Monday through Friday, 6:30 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. The lobby of the building contains a full-time receptionist and computer program that will only give the parent or primary care giver access to the locked building with the right credentials, ensuring utmost safety for each child. For more information please call us.

Our Staff

We have observed among Early Childhood programs that there often exists a significant turnover rate. Often this is due to educator pay as well as ratio concerns. It is our goal to hire educators and reimburse them adequately for the time, care, attention and professional instruction they will be offering to each child and family. It is also a priority to us that each classroom be staffed in such a way as to offer each member of that classroom community the benefit of being supported to the fullest. We will have a lead teacher and assistants as a unified team to encourage, support, document and facilitate dynamic and effective educational outcomes.

The Parent Experience

River Academy has implemented a software program that ensures the safety of your children, keeps you updated throughout the day, including meals, rest time, daily bathroom use, classroom activities and upcoming events. Your child’s teacher will post updates and pictures throughout the day on our password protected website and account provided to each family upon enrollment. Parents must check in and out within our lobby, separate from the locked building, when taking their children to school and picking them up. We are advocates for parent engagement with the educational process. We will be looking to you as the experts of your own child and will partner with you to reach the goals of your family. For more information please call us.

Top Rated Teachers

Care providers and teachers will be the first to tell you how important early education is for young children. It shapes the rest of their lives and can provide a head start in learning and socialization. We pay teachers fairly and we staff an experienced management team to oversee daily activities.

Security & Safety

We want parents to feel comfortable leaving their children in our care. Therefore, we’ll have you select a unique 4-digit code only known to yourself and our Brightwheel Software, to enhance security. Parents must also provide the proper credentials to enter our locked facility for pickup and drop-off.

Cleanliness

Cleanliness is a priority with us and our state of the art building is equipped with filters to eliminate germs. We also regularly clean and sanitize rooms, toys, tables, and so on in order to maintain proper health standards. We are also equipped with a commercial grade kitchen – see sample menu.

"We are so thankful for River Academy. They provide a safe and fun learning environment for our two children. We never have to worry throughout the day because the staff is more than caring and fully competent. Just in case you're missing your kids you can check in on them with the software. We are more than pleased."
