River Road Church offers programs for children as a service to the parents and children in our church and in our community. The school, established in 1972, provides a place where children can grow in their unique way and experience opportunities that will help them develop to their greatest potential.
The programs set up are developmentally appropriate for children on each of the age levels. The program for each age group varies according to the physical, intellectual, social and emotional maturity of the children in order to meet the needs of each group. Realizing that children learn best by exploring, discovering and experiencing, a hands-on center-based approach is used in each classroom.
The children are taught in a warm and caring atmosphere, by teachers who provide both nurturing and stimulating experiences to promote growth. Teachers design their class’s curriculum based on the interests of their children and what their children need to experience and know at that particular stage of development.
