Preschool & Childcare Center

The River Valley Preschool & Child Care Center provides a Christian environment for children from 8 weeks through 6 years of age where children are encouraged to grow and develop. Learning takes place as each child explores his or her environment, both individually and in groups. Individual differences in growth rates and styles of learning are respected. The goal is to promote a balance between the spiritual, intellectual, social and physical areas of development. The Preschool & Child Care Center was developed as a ministry within the church, but focuses on serving and loving the whole community.
