Enrollment for the 2024-2025 school year is now open!
For the 2024-2025 school year, our Tots class will meet on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 8:30am – 9:30am.
Our Tots class is:
Co-Teaching in each class
RVCP’s co-teaching model, with two teachers in each class, is at the root of our ability to implement our unique social-emotional learning focus and authentically individualize for each child's needs, strengths, and interests. Having two teachers present also enables better support of the children, and helps us maintain low child to adult ratios to create an engaging, positive environment.
Our Co-Op Model
We believe when parents engage in their child’s learning, the experience is more rewarding for both child and parents. Our preschool is a parent-run co-op, and its success depends on everyone’s contributions.
As part of the RVCP community, Tots families will have an introductory-level of co-op responsibilities that should feel manageable and comfortable for a first-time preschool experience. Each family is required to:
Attend each class with their child
Attend three of our monthly parent meetings
Participate in two fundraising events
Participate in two yearly (September, June) and one monthly school cleaning
See the full rewards of our process and details on our Co-Op Experience page.

Caregivers attend with their children, with each class led by 2 teachers and supported by a NSC parent educator.
