River Academy Philosophy

We believe each child is a unique and capable learner. Our educational programs exist to scaffold and build upon each child’s growth and development through observation, assessment, documentation and interaction. We believe that the first five years of a child’s life are precious and an invaluable time to nurture, promote and encourage social-emotional, cognitive, and character learning and competencies.

We accomplish this through creating authentic and dynamic learning environments that promote curiosity, caring relationships and connections through developmentally appropriate individualized instruction. The interactions the child has during this period of life are of utmost importance to us. Because of this, we encourage parent engagement and individualized curriculum based on child and family need.

Our educators inquire, interact and introduce new knowledge and learning opportunities in a fun, creative, educationally stimulating way. We believe each day and experience offers a learning opportunity and outcome.

Modern Curriculum - Solid Teaching

We believe that every child is capable of limitless possibilities. Independence, confidence and the ‘Love of Learning’ is our mission for all our students. The teachers of River Academy share a common goal…Learning is Fun. We help inspire these young brilliant minds to connect and grow with fun interactive lessons.

By individualizing our teaching styles, we have eliminated the outdated expectation that every child learns the same way. Our team is trained to assess every student to determine their V.A.R.K style. Your child may be a Visual, Auditory, Read & Write or Kinetic learner. However, they receive information, it is our goal to provide it to them in a fun, safe, nurturing environment.

Allowing students to access information in terms they are comfortable with will increase their academic confidence. But it doesn’t stop at academics. Compassion and respect is the foundation our lesson plans are built upon. Socialization skills are just as important to our youth as learning to read and write. We invite parents who would like to experience the outrageous fun educational groups we provide to our students daily.

Infants

Infant care is offered for ages six weeks through fifteen months, or until desired milestones are met. All infants develop at different rates, which means some may transition into our toddler program as early as the child’s first birthday, while other may benefit from more time in the infant room. This program provides essential bonding, nurturing, feeding, daily interactions, relationship building, and safe, developmentally appropriate stimuli exploration.

Toddlers

Depending on the child’s development and the parent’s comfort level, our toddler programs are offered to children twelve to fifteen months through three years of age. These programs provide a nurturing and educational classroom setting and assists children in reaching standard developmental milestones, social interactions, and investigation and exploration of environment. This keeps learning at a balanced level of fun and curiosity.

Preschool and Kindergarten

Our preschool program begins at the age of three and continues until the child is Kindergarten ready. This introduces children to early literacy/language, reading, mathematical and scientific concepts, music and the arts, continued social and emotional growth, and character development. Our programs offer a rich environment for students to explore and master. Once this occurs, the child is ready to enroll in Kindergarten programs.
