Every Day

Learning Through Play

Every child is an artist- Pablo Picasso

At Rivendell, art is a part of every day. During free choice times, art supplies are openly available, and there is at least one teacher-led creative activity. Art strives to be open-ended. It's the process, not the product we value at Rivendell.

Imaginative Play

Play is the highest form of research-Albert Einstein

Imaginative Play is central to the development of a preschoolers mind. It's where children explore ideas, develop friendships, and learn how to interact socially. And it's fun!

Outdoor Time

In all things of nature, there is something of the marvelous-Aristotle

At Rivendell, we go outside everyday, rain, wind, or snow. We observe. We collect. We explore. We rescue worms. We don't stomp on ants. We climb trees. We get messy. We take risks. And we stay safe.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide a safe, loving and nurturing environment where children can explore, discover, create and play. And laugh, dance, sing, cry and be their amazing selves. (And go on lots of field trips!)
