Preschool Programs (3-4 years old)
The curriculum content at River School for our preschool program is comprehensive, covering all key areas; literacy, mathematics, science, social-emotional development, physical development and the arts. River School provides an environment where children are encouraged to explore and be curious, feel safe and loved, discuss conflicts and negotiate with their peers. They begin to explore the world outside by taking field trips and inviting in guests who share information, ideas and points of view on a variety of subjects. The children also have an opportunity to participate in many special seasonal activities such as soccer, swimming, theatrical performances and family gatherings.
As a private preschool in New York and Jersey City, we embrace the vibrant communities around us and encourage questions while nurturing your preschoolers desire to have new experiences. We also like to stress more than just learning, part of our preschool program includes a focus on healthy bodies. Physical activity is essential for motor-development, self-esteem and of course growing healthy bodies.
Once our students go through the preschool program, they move into the pre-kindergarten program which is the final step before they are ready for kindergarten!
