East River Child Development Center Reviews

By on

In a society that is characterized by statistics, one seems to forget that institutions are made up of human beings who realize that wealth is measured in human terms.  Given the expert leadership, East River is an exemplary oasis of bona fide learning wherein children do not feel like fixed entities but rather active participants in the learning process.  The children feel safe, comfortable and their life experience is not only acknowledged- it is embraced.  Recognition of one's potential underscores the philosophy of this fine school: a culturally sensitive strengths perspective is more comprehensive and inspiring than a deficits perspective.  To be sure, I will be hard pressed to find any individual who is not thrilled to be associated with East River.  Bravo !

When I went for a visit to East River Child Development Center I had already seen about 20 schools. To be honest, I hadn't seen anything that I was excited about. I was afraid we would have to settle for something below my hope and dreams for my child. I called the school and jumped in a taxi, went to meet the director and tour the school. The location is perfect and peaceful. The walk through the school was very inspiring to me. I knew my son would thrive here.
I had seen a lot of schools where the teachers and students weren't happy or engaged. This school is ALIVE! You could feel in in the halls, in the classrooms and most importantly in the children. I was moved and excited for the first time by a school. The facilities are immaculate, there are multiple sensory therapy spaces, the theapists were fully engaged and physically on the same level as the children. Having a special need child, that was a sign that they truly understand the needs of children who learn differently.
A few days later I brought my son for a visit. They immediately went down to his eye level and started to make him feel comfortable and safe. They were patient and took him one step at a time from lower stimulation situations to full stimulation, the playground! In the playground, the children greeted him with smiles, hugs and enthusiasm. Within no time, he and the director were off to the slide and I was waiting at the bottom. At the end of the tour, he didn't want to leave. My husband and I are very excited about the fall, we feel our son will soar to new heights here, in the hands, hearts and minds of a passionate and devoted staff. It really is the most exciting school I have seen.
