My name is Dawn Newman and as of June 2014, I am the Director at Riverview Baptist Day School. I was previously the staff supervisor for almost 2 years while completing training and working towards my Early childhood education degree. The children, their education & safety, and maintaining a Christian atmosphere are my top priorities. I look forward to working closely with our current families and new families as they come into our day school.
This is a fantastic school and child care center. The teachers and staff are amazing! My children have learned so much from this school. I couldn't imagine my kids going anywhere else. The teachers and staff truely care about the students and treat them like their own.
My daughter has been enrolled at Riverview for over 3 years and we love it! My daughter is cared for by the teachers as if she were their own child which is very important to me. Riverview offers a fun environment for learning which helps my daughter pick up new subjects quicker. I would definitely recommend this school to everyone in the area.
I enrolled my (now) 10 month old daughter over a month ago and had nothing but a good experience with Riverview Baptist Day School since. It was my first time leaving my child with someone else other than family (hardest thing ever) and they helped me transition and made me feel extremely comfortable about them caring for my child. I love the teachers and staff, as they are very hands on with the children (the small classes help) giving them the utmost attention. My daughter pays no attention to mommy in the mornings when I drop her off now, she darts for the toys, teachers, and to play with the other children. My daughter has developed significantly since being enrolled. Each day I am amazed with how much she learns. I also am very happy the children are not stuck in a single room all day like most day cares. The children get a change in scenery with each activity they do (separate lunch room, library, activity room, craft room, playground, etc.) Highly recommended day school and great pricing!
My son has been at this school for 3 years. He started at the school speaking very little english and has shown great progress in the 3 years he has been at Riverview. I love this school and the teachers too. They know how to teach the children and my son is ready for kindergarten. Thank you Riverview.
Riverview has been awesome with my child. I wish that I would of enrolled him in sooner than the age of 4. If you were to ask my child what he thought of his preschool, he would smile and say he loves it. He loves all his teachers and classmates and has made many close friendships in the year that he has been attending. The experience that he has had has been great. There are many different classrooms he gets to go into for different activities and not just stuck in 1 room all day as I have seen in other day cares. The classrooms are very large and has the feel of an elementary school which I really like to help him adjust for when he goes to kindergarten. My child is happier at Riverview and he is loved by everyone. Riverview staff worked closely with Child Find to help with his speech as well. Child Find was so impressed by how fast he breezed through their own lesson plan and my son's speech improved in 2 months, and all the credit goes to Riverview. My son feels at home at Riverview and that is something you want your child to feel when you drop them off for school. I feel the school goes above and beyond for special activities the kids get to do too.
I am very dissatisfied with the school. I enrolled my child in this school thinking that he would be getting great care but after only being there for a few months, there was teacher turnover....over and over and over again. My child had no consistency, the teachers seemed untrained and represented the school poorly. Some of the administrative staff was very professional and kind but if I had to rate them on their education aspect they might get only a half a star if they could keep quality teachers. As soon as they do get quality teachers, those teachers leave shortly thereafter as if they realize they picked the wrong place to be to work. Look elsewhere or learn the hard way.
I enroled by daughter in there before school and after school program upon dropping my daughter off for her first day before school and after school program I ended up leaving my daughter in the lobby because there were no teacher there for the program (this was more than one hour after they opened). As a result of the run around that the staff any the paster kept giving me I was left with no other choice but to withdraw my child immediately. I would not recommend this place to anyone includine my worst enemy, they should be ashamed of their self. The worst thing is the fact that the staff kept lying.
I Have a 3 year old daughter, she been at Riverview since she was 6 months old, I love all the teachers and the way they care for the children is unique, If you are looking for a place for your children to learn and to be love you have founded the right place RIVERVIEW.
This school has really turned for the worst. It's a shame the church managing this school would let it go downhill like this. The last director made so much improvments and when she left you could see the difference in the quality of care the children are receiving. They have lost all their experienced and quality teachers. It's a SHAME!
This school went downhill so quickly with the loss of the school director and the two top teachers. Military families LOOK ELSEWHERE! I would never send my children to this school now!!
Terrible school since they no longer have a director and the pastor has taken over running the school. Most of the long time teachers have left and the parents have pulled their kids out.
My child started at 18mths now says abc's and counts up to twenty at age 2.
Perfect Pre-school program! Although it's a 'day care' too, the pre-school program starts with 2 year olds. When my younger daughter turned 2, she went into the class and started talking within days and they started potty training within weeks! My 3 year old learned so much in the older class too. All the staff was great and they worked with our schedule. Would recommend to Everyone!
My girls have gone here for 3+ years and they love it! I wish they were clloser to my house but it's worth the drive. There could not be a more caring group of teachers. The kids learn so much it's shocking how quickly they develope their cognative thinking skills! I love this school!
Great school, great teachers, and a great environment. My son learns a great deal attending this private school.
This is a wonderful school. The staff is incredible. Everyone is friendly and knowledgable. Classes are small, allowing teachers to give individual attention to the students. The infants and toddlers receive extremely loving care. My 17th month old son loves going to day school so much he doesn't even say goodbye to his mommy in the mornings. I feel very safe and secure as a mother sending my son to Riverview Baptist Day School.
This school takes students from 6wks of age through 2nd grade. The staff is amazing, the kindergarten and first grade curriculem is challenging. My children (6 and 2) feel loved, challenged and safe here.
