About Us

A Message From the Director

Dear Prospective Parents:

River Road Church Preschool Development Center is a school committed to being a partner with parents in the raising of your children.  Families’ values, customs and practices are respected and incorporated into the development curriculum that we offer.  Together, with parents, we strive to nurture and develop the children promoting respect, responsibility, a healthy self-esteem and a life long love for learning.

The curriculum is based on the best in early childhood practices and current brain research.  We begin with sensory motor development, as well as developing:

  • Spatial awareness
  • Perceptual motor abilities
  • Visual discrimination
  • Tactile discrimination
  • Problem solving skills
  • The ability to cross mid-line

All of this enables children to master basic cognitive skills, such as:

  • Matching
  • Grouping
  • Sorting
  • Sequencing
  • One-to-one correspondence

This is the foundation of all the learning they will do the rest of their lives.  Through hands-on play, children are allowed to explore, investigate, experiment, problem solve as well as develop important social and emotional skills.

Parents are strongly encouraged to become involved in their children’s educational process.  The school has an open-door policy.  In the preschool, parents are asked to come into the classroom for their own special day to participate in the various activities of the day.  There are also many special events for parents to become involved in as well as serving on a Parent Committee.

Involvement with the community is a mission of River Road Preschool.  During the year, children, parents and staff are involved with outreach efforts to the community through the school’s “All God’s Children” program.

If you would like to know more about our school, we welcome your contacting us.

Sincerely,

Margaret Collins
