River's Program Offering

The River School's Preschool Program and corresponding age guidelines are thoughtfully designed to optimize children's development throughout their toddler years (18 months - 3 years). If you are interested in a program you don't see listed for a particular age, please contact Megan Campbell at or 202.380.9206 to discuss options.

River's Elementary Program begins with Kindergarten (for those who are 5 years old by September 1) and ends in Grade 3. Our new Upper Elementary Program (Grades 4-6) will have a phased-in approach; we started with Grade 4 in the 2022-2023 School Year. For the 2023-2024 School Year, we will have Grades 4 and 5.
