Bright Beginnings/After School Club

Bright Beginnings: First Steps, Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten, and Kindergarten
Riverside’s Bright Beginnings extended stay program is available to families who are currently enrolled in our First Steps through Kindergarten AM or PM ½ day programs. Children have the opportunity to engage in activities that are designed to stimulate curiosity and intellect, challenge and develop individual skills, activate developing minds, and build Christian character. Activities are teacher-directed and students receive a nutritious snack. Operating hours are 7:45am-3:15pm, Monday through Friday. Bright Beginnings is based on a first-come-first-served basis when enrolling. Due to high demand, students may only enroll in Bright Beginnings on the days they attend class. Every effort will be made to accommodate your preferred placement in AM or PM; however, it is not guaranteed.

After School Club: Kindergarten-6th grade
This program is designed to enhance social, emotional, and physical growth while building Christian character. Activities are teacher-directed, including outside play, homework time, and a nutritious snack. Operating hours are 3:00-5:30pm.
