Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based

From the Director:

Each classroom has a routine in which they follow that incorporates play throughout the day.

Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

RiverStone’s Preschool program incorporates the Creative Curriculum approach, pre-kindergarten skills, and the idea that every child can achieve success, into every aspect of the day. Our exceptional staff and classroom environment seek to aid preschoolers in the basic concepts of language, math and science, while also developing their expanding gross and fine motor skills. We are not only preparing preschoolers for school, we are primarily promoting a love and engagement with education for a life time of learning.
