River Park Nursery School

For over 30 years, River Park Nursery School has been nurturing the young children of the Upper West Side community - preparing them with the skills necessary to move confidently between the family and the wider world of learning in society.

Our core goal is the individual growth and the development of the whole child - creatively, socially, emotionally, and intellectually. We meet each child at his or her own level and pace, then guide and build from there. Through this personal approach a sense of trust, dignity and self-respect is strengthened.

And, as we encourage each child to grow into the unique and special person that he or she is, we also encourage his or her understanding that - just as it takes all the vibrant colors to create a complete and beautiful rainbow - each of us is also an integral part of a wider community, a bigger country, a while world.
