Riverside Local Schools manages its own inclusive preschool program for children ages 3-5. The program serves both typically developing preschool children as well as preschool children with disabilities. To be eligible for preschool for the 2022-2023 school year, children must be 3 years of age on or before September 30, 2022 AND must be potty trained.
The preschool program has AM classes and PM classes Monday through Thursday.
The cost of tuition is $100 per month – per student. First month of tuition, as a deposit, is required upon registration. Deposits are nonrefundable. Since registration is being done online this year, the deposit will have to be dropped off at the Board Office (inside of Riverside High School) *after* the Registration office contacts you to finalize registration.
Preschool is currently being housed at Hale Road School, however the location is subject to change.

The preschool program is licensed by the Ohio Department of Education and follows a state approved curriculum that is aligned to the Ohio Early Childhood Content Standards. The goal is to prepare all children for Kindergarten by implementing all five developmental domains; fine/gross motor, communicative, adaptive, cognitive, and social/emotional. In addition to the five developmental domains, children will learn how to compromise, be respectful to others, and problem solve - preschool provides a place where your child can gain a sense of self, explore, play with peers and build confidence. The preschool teachers are licensed by the Ohio Department of Education.
