Our son Ryan began attending River Road Preschool when he was two years old. He had wonderful teachers this first year with Mrs. White and Mrs. Lannon. I am still in awe when I think of the weekly developmental lesson plans and updates we would receive from Mrs. White. She was so patient and truly dedicated to bringing her charges along in strengthening their skills at appropriate times.

Mrs. Wilkerson and Mrs. Bagwell continued to nurture and teach Ryan. The social interaction and exposure to learning set the tone for our only child. He loved them both very much and looked forward to going to school each day.

Lastly, Mrs. Hancock and Mrs. Cohn were instrumental in guiding us to looking at all day kindergarten for Ryan. Henrico County still had only half-day programs. This led Ryan to Collegiate, the University of Virginia, and currently Tulane Medical School. We truly believe Ryan’s strong start at River Road Preschool has set the tone for his successes and life.

We are very grateful to Margaret Collins for her constant pursuit of excellence and vision. Happy Anniversary wishes to River Road Preschool and a huge thank you from our family.
