Rivendell School's philosophy emphasizes the power of team building with and on behalf of each child and family served through its programs. This belief in the power of shared perspective shapes the work of Rivendell administrators, itinerant special educators and related service providers as they collaborate with families and colleagues to provide exceptional service to children and support to the early childhood community through the continuing educational opportunities it offers.
Services to children and families are provided regardless of race, gender, religious belief or socio-economic status. Every effort is made to reach out to the most disenfranchised families in our communities to help link them to the services their children are entitled to by law, but are not now receiving. Rivendell School is committed to pursuing its dual mission of service and continuing education with diligence and enthusiasm.
A Partnership with Parents
Rivendell School works with parents to help prevent academic and social failure among young children: ages 2-6.
If you suspect – or have been told by a teacher, medical professional or other concerned adult – that your child's physical, mental or social development is not progressing as anticipated, you are entitled to obtain a free evaluation.
It is in the best interests of the child – and the family – to address such concerns as early in the child's life as possible. The earlier delays are evaluated and addressed, the better the outcome.
Evaluations can help assess delays or lags in the development of your child's speech and language skills, motor abilities, thinking and comprehension, social and emotional reactions and learning style.
