Riviera PlaySchool offers a mindful program for the “whole child,” inspired by the best of Attachment Parenting, Reggio Emilia, and Non-Violent Communication (NVC). We are also inspired significantly by wonderful aspects of other non-traditional, and “kid-centric” philosophies, such as the freedom to explore from Bev Bos, the nature of Waldorf, and the experiential learning of Montessori.
Offering empowering, compassionate teachers, and incredibly engaging,nature-ful, experiential “hands-on” learning. Set in a clean, loving, organic environment, with hiking trail, large lush setting with fruit trees, children’s vegetable garden, and dedicated school house.
One of the preeminent preschools in the South Bay area, Riviera PlaySchool is an independent, “kid-centric” pre-school where people of all sizes can learn, grow, be, and enjoy.
Our school house, “the studio,” provides a delightful, cozy space for dance, yoga, music making, dress-up, and snuggling with books, while our grounds provide ample space for hiking, farming, building, and messy, muddy, child-directed projects.
