What are your hours of operation?
We are open Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. (until further notice - temporary hours). Inclement weather closings follow the Jefferson Parish School system's closings. Our holiday schedule is listed in the Riverside Preschool Manual.
What are the costs for my child to attend Riverside Preschool?
There is a $100 registration fee to secure your child’s spot.
You will receive a supply list. We may ask for you to supply more when we start running low.
The tuition is $165 per week for 6 weeks to 24 months and $155 per week for 25 months to 4 years.
All tuition is due on the Friday before the upcoming week no later than 10 a.m. For a second child, the rate is $130 per week.
Can my child come two days a week?
Your child can attend as many or as few days as you would like. Because we are a five-day full-time program, the cost would remain the same.
Do you serve lunch?
Lunches are not available and must be supplied daily. One snack must also be supplied daily. Riverside Preschool will provide the second snack. On Fridays, pizza is available for $1 a slice.
What else will I need to provide?
You will be responsible for your child’s diapers, wipes, nap mat, cups and bottles, and utensils.
Do you teach a specific curriculum?
Primarily we use the Pennacle curriculum. Supplemental teaching materials include Frogstreet Press, LifeWay, The Jesus Storybook Bible, and We Learn. We focus on age-appropriate learning and development. For more details, ask Christina.
