Staff

The staff of Riverside CDC comprises of teachers who have excelled in education and in the fundamentals of Child Development.

In general, Some of our teachers hold Bachelor’s degrees in Early Childhood Education, Elementary Education, Psychology, Child and Family Studies, Child Development or related fields of study and have a minimum of two years experience working in an early childhood setting. Many of the teachers have completed a Master’s degree in Early Childhood Education. These committed teachers are leaders in early childhood education and provide modeling and mentorship both within and outside the program at Riverside CDC.

The Directors at Riverside CDC are visionary and innovative and seek to support families and staff as they journey with young children through their first education experience. They work to build a community of children, parents, and educators to develop a program which upholds the primary purpose of the Preschool: the spiritual, physical, social, cognitive and emotional development of its students.
