Early School

Two-Year-Old Program

Our new, loose curriculum based program, will prepare children for preschool and beyond with a unique "Crib to College" approach, guided by the principles of the Reggio Emilia teaching style. The new program features:

  • The choice of 3 or 5, half days or full days per week
  • No requirement for child to be potty trained
  • Access to the resources of the #1 private school in Iowa
  • Same tuition as preschool program

Preschool and Junior Kindergarten

Rivermont's Early School builds a strong academic and social foundation in a caring, supportive environment. Teachers weave experiences throughout the day that foster creativity and critical thinking. Students are challenged to think like scientists, artists, writers, and mathematicians through a variety of learning adventures.

For those who wish to extend the day beyond the morning program, families have the option of adding lunch and our afternoon program, Afternoon Adventures. Afternoon Adventures complements the morning program in a less structured environment where enrichment activities are presented in a non-sequential manner. Afternoon Adventures combines Preschool and Junior Kindergarten students.
