At Riverside Children’s Center, we believe that childcare should promote the emotional, social, physical and cognitive growth of each child. Each child should be viewed as unique and encouraged to reach their full potential through developmentally appropriate experiences. We are committed to enhancing each child’s understanding of their world, so they can approach new concepts, materials and situations with confidence and enthusiasm.
Riverside understands that children are best served when parents’ needs and concerns are met and addressed, along with the needs of their children. RCC’s goal is to provide the best possible program for children and, at the same time, to be a resource and support system to families.
Riverside takes great pride in our educators and realizes that they are the heart and soul of our program. High-quality care and education are never compromised at Riverside. Educators give their very best every day and it shows! We select educators who are warm and have a teaching style and philosophy that reflects the approach we use at Riverside. Our educators are college-educated childcare professionals with diverse backgrounds and talents.
A music teacher visits the center twice per month. We also offer a variety of optional enrichment programs each year that may include sports programs, gymnastics, yoga, and/or language programs. Families who would like to enroll their child in an optional program must submit a registration form and payment to the office prior to the start of each program session. Optional programs usually run in 8-10 week sessions and fees range from approximately $100 to $140 per session.
At various times throughout the year, we may plan field trips to a variety of places such as farms, museums, parks, etc. During the summer months, teachers provide a “day camp” atmosphere by maximizing the amount of time and activities outside, including water play.
Throughout the months of January, February, and March we welcome weekly visitors to Riverside as a part of winter enrichment. Visitors vary from year to year and may include storytellers, theatre groups, animals, reptiles, nature programs, musicians, magicians, etc. We also offer Yoga during this time.
