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. 


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.

our 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. 

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.

River Oak Preschool operates from 9:00 AM until 12:00 PM each school day.  Our school year runs from September (after Labor Day) until May (before Memorial Day).

If Chesapeake Public Schools are closed due to inclement weather, River Oak Preschool will also be closed. If the public schools open one hour late, the Preschool will open on time. If the public schools open two hours late, the Preschool will be closed. You will be notified of any other changes in the schedule.


Tuition is based on the annual calendar and is divided into equal monthly payments for convenience. You may also choose to pay for the entire school year in September as a one-time payment. There is no tuition reduction for school vacations, snow days, holidays, or days absent. Tuition payments are due by the first of each month, September through May, and should be made out to River Oak Preschool or ROP. If you cannot pay on the first of the month, please speak with the director to arrange an alternate date. There is a $25 fee for any returned checks. Parents may set up an automatic deposit to the preschool through their individual banks.

We look forward to an exciting year with our new students! Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns throughout the year.
