Rivendell offers a full-day academic program four or five days per week.

Full-day Academic Program

The full-day academic program (8:00 AM – 3:00 PM) offers families the option of attending either four or five days per week. It is designed for those students who are ready for a highly academic school readiness program.

Rivendell Preschool is for children ages 3-4 (as of the first day of the school year). Students who will turn 5 between the first day of the school year and December 31 may enroll as pre-Kindergarteners in a Younger Kids class.

It focuses on developing early literacy and numeracy skills through fun hands-on work jobs. In addition, our uniquely designed cutting curriculum focuses on increasing children’s fine motor skills that support improved writing and drawing. Students also participate in Rivendell’s school-wide topic units as well as Art, Music, Physical Education, Spanish, and STEM classes weekly.

Social and emotional development is also an important part of this program. Students develop these skills through a variety of dramatic and outdoor play activities, community eating arrangements, and peer leadership opportunities.
