Under the ministries of Riverchase United Methodist Church our program is designed to provide a safe, loving Christian environment where children ages 6 months through Kindergarten (on Sept.1) can learn about God's love through interaction with other children and caring adults.
Our learning activities, materials and teaching practices are developmentally appropriate and designed to build a love of learning and a foundation for success in school years ahead. Our highly qualified teaching staff is loving, creative, experienced and dedicated to helping your child grow spiritually, physically, socially and academically.
o Our program runs September through late August.
o Kindergarten begins in August.
o We also offer a six week summer program.
Classroom hours are 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. each weekday with extended hours (available for additional fees) beginning at 8:00 a.m. and ending at 3:00 p.m. Students attend weekly chapel, music and Happy Feet classes. Kindergarteners and 4K also attend a weekly Spanish class and a monthly nutrition class. Kindergarteners stay until 3 p.m. each Wednesday.
We begin registering students for the NEXT school year each January. Priority is given to present RDS students, their siblings, and RUMC Members. We register other students throughout each school year as space is available. Registration for our six-week Summer program begins in April.
