Our Philosophy

Everything We Know
We Learned from Kindergartners

After more than 20 years teaching children the basics of reading, writing and arithmetic, we’ve learned a thing or two:

  • The most important life skills aren’t found in books.
  • A positive self-image is the most valuable thing we can teach.
  • Strong social skills like playing fair and sharing are the foundation of success in school—and in life.
  • Healthy development depends on loving caregivers, a creative environment, age-appropriate activities and lots of play and imagination.
  • An afternoon nap followed by milk and cookies makes everything better.

What Sets Riviera Apart?

On-site medicalOn-site medical care—Quality medical care is available to all ages with parent permission by licensed practicing pediatricians. Riviera also has a “sick” classroom, which allows us to isolate certain contagious illnesses, decreasing the spread of the illness to other children. That way children can return to Riviera much sooner than they could to regular daycare centers and preschools—and that means less missed time at work for you as well.

Special services for you and your child—Because time is precious to all our parents, Riviera offers a variety of special services designed to make your life easier and more efficient. We provide onsite haircut services for the children, semi-annual professional photographs, drop off and pick up dry cleaning service and monthly sleepover nights so you can plan regular “date nights.” In addition, we offer popular programs like gymnastics, karate and kindermusic onsite so you don’t have to run your child across town to classes.

Developmentally based learning programs—By keeping the same ages together, our teachers and caregivers are able to create play programs and learning experiences appropriate for each age group and developmental stage.

Cameras in every classroom—We provide a large monitor in the entry area of the school so that parents can watch their child’s classroom without disrupting the room. This allows you to see how your child is naturally interacting in the classroom, and provides an unparalleled level of comfort and security to both you and your child.

Riviera is centrally located—We're close to two main interstates, providing easy drop-off and pick-up access to and from downtown.
