Riverside Child Care

Riverside Child Care operates two classes designed to coordinate with the school yearly cut off dates ensuring that children’s learning is tailored to best fit and meet the appropriate academic and social/emotional levels of the group. The Early Learners program welcomes children that will attend kindergarten two years after commencing preschool while Preschool children will enter their elementary school the following September.

Our group web.JPGsmall group sizes (a maximum of 14 children) means that staff can introduce children to a diverse range of topics like reading, math, science, technology, social studies, and fine arts, including singing and dancing, while at the same time tend to each child’s emotional and social needs. This forms a very solid foundation for a successful introduction to school life and helps establish a love of learning that lasts a life time.

Clearwater Preschool staff use a curriculum that is thoughtfully planned, challenging, engaging and developmentally appropriate, promoting positive outcomes for all their children. Children are encouraged to think for themselves, ask many questions and complete activities once started. Much attention is given to the work invested in a project rather than the outcome, thereby helping children develop positive self-esteem, understanding that success is derived from effort and enjoyment rather than a perfection and praise.

Children are provided with a healthy snack and the opportunity to play outside or in the large gymnasium depending on the weather.
