The Little Falcons integrated preschool program is located at Riverside and Thorpe school. Our preschool program begins on September 13th, 2021 and follows the Danvers Public Schools calendar. Admission to the Little Falcons program is rolling, and children are eligible to begin on their third birthday.

The preschool schedule is as follows:

The Philosophy of the Little Falcons Preschool program is one of open acceptance for all children at varying developmental levels.
Our goal is to create a climate of respect, success and joy necessary for lifelong learning through –

  • development of self-esteem, confidence and individual potential;
  • recognition of variability and similarities among backgrounds, learning rates and learning styles of all children;
  • encouragement of child and adult active exploration and creative expression in a secure and consistent environment;
  • acceptance of each child’s view of his/her world and
  • continual parent involvement in the program.
