Early Childhood

École Riverview School presently offers an English only Nursery program and Kindergarten in both French Immersion and English. Two spacious, well equipped Early Childhood classrooms are located in the new wing of the school.

​Children who are four years old prior to December 31 of a given school year are eligible for the nursery program. For kindergarten, a child must reach his/her fifth birthday by December 31 of the school year.

A birth certificate and a Manitoba Medical Card are required prior to acceptance into either program. In some instances, proof of address may be required.

Our programs are activity-based, child-centred and play-oriented and follow developmentally appropriate Early Childhood practice. Our goal is to provide a warm, caring, nurturing environment that addresses itself to the needs of the whole child; physically, emotionally/socially and intellectually.

Each program is two and a half hours per day, either 9:00 - 11:30 a.m. or 1:00 - 3:30 p.m. Whether a class will be morning or afternoon depends upon a variety of factors, including availability of the teacher, enrolment numbers and classroom space.

It is policy that Nursery children be picked up by an adult, as they will not be dismissed unaccompanied. Kindergarten children will not be dismissed unaccompanied unless specifically requested, in writing, by parents.

Snack is provided in the Nursery program. Kindergarten children are encouraged to bring their own small, nutritious snack daily.

Gym activities are a regular part of the program and therefore white-soled or non-marking runners are required.

Children should have a bag to carry home art projects, letters, or other forms of school communication.

Entering interviews with parents and children are held the first days of school in order to familiarize parent(s)/guardian(s), students and teachers with each other and with the program. Children attend school for 1 hour on the first day following the interviews to assist them to make the adjustment to school.

No written reports are given during the Nursery years. In Kindergarten there are written reports in March and June. A minimum of two student led conferences or parent/teacher interview times are scheduled by the school to discuss individual children's progress. Additional exchanges can be arranged upon request with individual teachers.

We accept registrations in the school office throughout the school year.​
