River Road Church Preschool Development Center provides quality programs for children ages 2 through 5. The school serves almost 300 families in the church and community, helping them meet the social, emotional, spiritual, cognitive, and physical needs of their children. The program is an inclusive one where differences in culture, ethnicity, gender and ability are respected and highly valued. All children are recognized as unique individuals with their own developmental and educational needs.
The preschool was the first school in Virginia to be accredited by the National Association of Child Care Professionals in 2004, and also has been accredited by the National Accreditation Commission for Early Care and Education Programs (NAC) since 1987. This developmental school is licensed by the Commonwealth of Virginia, Dept. of Social Services, and often serves as a model program for local universities. River Road Preschool was awarded the honor of being the 2008 National Child Care Center of the Year by the National Association of Child Care Professionals.
The school is staffed by very qualified and dedicated professionals, under the direction of Margaret Collins, who was named the 2002 National Child Care Director of the Year by the National Association of Child Care Professionals.
