“Thank you for being such a wonderful influence on our son, Montana. The atmosphere is stimulating, safe and fun, and he came home every day energized, inspired, and happy. We, as parents, always felt secure and fortunate that he was there. What a terrific place to send a child!”

"My son started at River school at a year old. When he began school, he was afraid of other children and very shy. He is now entering his final year in the pre-k class at River School and the transformation has been astonishing. As an educator for 13 years I am proud to say my son has become a socially adjusted, sensitive, imaginative, creative and artistic child. His vocabulary, literacy skills, math and science knowledge are beyond what most Kindergarteners know. The staff at River School have helped my son overcome his fears and become a risk taker, ready to try new things. The school and teachers are a loving, wonderful second family. I am so lucky that my son has had such a rich foundation during these most important formative years. I highly recommend this school to anyone who wants to enlighten and enrich their child’s daily experiences and as a result have a happy and inquisitive child!"
“We have seen our son grow and develop in a warm, safe, educational, and enjoyable environment and this is something every family would like to provide as a daily setting for their child. Not only did we feel comfortable leaving our son in the school’s care, but we have also been able to always relate our concerns to both teachers and administrative staff. The school was very helpful in finding information and applying for private schools – a very demanding process for New York City, which was completely unfamiliar to us.”

“The facilities at River School rival that of the best preschools in the city. The classes are immaculately clean and well-kept, the daily programs are creative and inspiring, materials are abundant, and the educational atmosphere is sophisticated and fun. My children learned more than I could have imagined – and enjoyed the process. Additionally, I always felt that the children were safe, with many staff attending to their needs on a constant basis.”
“Geneva first came to River School when she was 4 months old, and together we’ve watched her grow into a happy and healthy 3 year old. The love and care she has received from all of you has undoubtedly contributed to that; and the peace of mind and confidence we have received from her being here has, in no small part, allowed us to be better parents. The loving way she’s been cared for, the education she’s received, and the social skills she’s developed have given her an extraordinary foundation on which to grow. We will always remember that River School is where she got her start.”
