Riverland Terrace Day School Fall 2022 School Year 

We at Riverland Terrace Day School want to thank you for choosing our program to entrust your child’s early learning education. My name is Laura Holmes and I am the Director of the program. I myself have a young child that attends the school. We believe that our program offers a wonderful loving environment for your child to learn critical social skills and the fundamentals needed for their journey into Kindergarten.

I am looking forward to another wonderful school year. I believe that children strive with love and interaction with children their age. My promise to you is that each day my staff and myself will show God's love through our care and attention your child receives from us. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me by email - click here.  May God’s love protect and surround you always.
