God calls the family to play a vital role in leading the next generation.
We want to come alongside parents and offer opportunities to disciple their children.


First Time Here?

We can’t wait to meet your family! Be sure to pick up an Acorn Alley welcome bag which contains a helpful parent handbook, a tag for you child’s bag, and a small gift from us.

How does Check-In Work?

To make your first time visit easier, you are welcome to pre-register your child here. Kidcheck is the program we use for security and attendance. If you’d rather wait until Sunday morning, our Kidcheck coordinator will be happy to assist you in registering. Each time you visit, you will check in at a Kidcheck computer (located in lobbies A & C) and print out your child’s personalized tag and your guardian tag. For the safety and security of your children, please present your guardian tag to pick up your child from their classroom.

Welcome to River Oak Preschool! We are happy to have you become part of our family. This is an exciting time in your child’s life, and we look forward to watching them grow. Thank you for sharing your family with our family. 

History and Mission

River Oak Preschool was established in 2008. We provide a loving early childhood environment where children can develop socially, emotionally, physically, intellectually and spiritually in a hands-on program.

We believe that children learn best through a child-centered, play-centered curriculum.

Staff

The staff at River Oak Preschool is an integral part of our program. Our teachers come from a variety of backgrounds. They either hold a degree in early childhood education and/or have years of experience working with young children. The kindergarten teachers must hold a degree in education and obtain a state teaching certificate.

All staff have annual wellness checks. Staff must also pass a background check from the National Crime Registry. All staff are CPR/First Aid/Epi Pen Certified.
