The River’s Bend Children’s Center staff has created a caring place for your peace of mind. Our staff has been carefully screened to find diligent, special people who teach from the heart. Teachers are also selected based on their nurturing skills, experience with children and educational background. All staff are required to participate in ongoing training every year.
Our caregivers provide your child with an educational learning environment, warmth, safety, healthy food, encouragement and positive guidance throughout the day. We excel at developing learning skills in each child’s intellectual, emotional, social and physical levels.
All teachers meet State of Virginia Licensing requirements. Many are certified in CPR and Standard First Aid. Staff members are also trained in Fire Drills and Evacuation Procedures planning in case of an emergency. All staff members have passed the Virginia State Police and Department of Social Services background checks.
All of our preschool teachers have been trained in the Classroom Assessment Scoring System (CLASS). This is a new teaching style developed out of UVA which focuses on positive child/teacher interactions. The CLASS teaching model is quickly spreading throughout the early childhood education community and we are very excited to be one of the first child care centers in Chesterfield County to incorporate this method.
