Riverview Early Childhood Center
Tucked away in a quiet neighborhood off the Mississippi River is Riverview Early Childhood Center. This location has three spacious classrooms, a gym, an outdoor playground and its own greenhouse and gardens where children are able to plant, weed, water and harvest fruits and vegetables.
Located in the northeast corner of Brooklyn Park, access is easy - just off West River Road - yet Riverview feels far away from any metro congestion.
As they enter Riverview, visitors immediately feel the inviting atmosphere. “Staff is amazing! We love the teachers. They are always so welcoming, happy and caring!” said a parent from a Riverview ECFE class.
As with all of our ECFE locations, Riverview’s classrooms are staffed by licensed parent educators and early childhood teachers. They are dedicated to providing positive support for families and use intentional teaching strategies to meet children’s individual needs.
One of the most unique features at Riverview is the greenhouse. In the “Class Under Glass” ECFE class, fun activities happen under the glass, even in the winter months. Parents and children learn about the outdoors and nature, both in and out of the greenhouse, through artwork, sensory experiences, planting, watering and weeding.
A parent from the class recently shared “We love being outside in the garden and greenhouse. We don’t have this [type of] space at home.”
Another great feature at Riverview is sibling care. This added feature takes away the dilemma of needing to find a sitter, and allows families to take age-specific classes with one child while the other child(ren) enjoys time in sibling care. From babies to preschoolers, there are plenty of opportunities for learning and exploring with friends in sibling care.
Carol Benjamin, Supervisor at Riverview Early Childhood Center says, “We are always excited to see families experience Riverview for the first time. It is truly the hidden gem of the ECFE program.”
