For Parents

About LRDS

Welcome to the Web site of Little River Day School (LRDS), a nurturing independent school for children from 12 months to school age.

LRDS has grown each year since it was founded in 1999. We are a close-knit community that values and nurtures the relationship among teachers, parents, and students.

We inspire children to develop clear values, a desire to learn, and an appreciation for all endeavors which broaden the mind and enlighten the spirit. In an era of constantly changing educational slogans LRDS remains true to its original mission: to provide a school experience that emphasizes core academic subjects, foreign language, art, drama, music, and physical education; as it supports the intellectual, social, emotional and physical growth of our students.

While celebrating the uniqueness of each child we embolden all students to strive for excellence in their personal pursuits.  Each child is seen as an individual and encouraged to reach full potential at LRDS. Strong moral conduct is fundamental to our community and we promote appropriate conduct, encourage self-awareness and responsible habits.

At LRDS, we seek to stimulate intellectual curiosity and lay the groundwork on which a life of continuous learning can be built.  We follow the Funshine Express Curriculum and provide optional Spanish classes in the afternoon and offer before and after school care. Children are exposed to the complexities of the world around them and encouraged to observe, investigate, and inquire.

“It is as necessary to wait with unhurried confidence for a child’s achievement as it is for a gardener to wait for a seed to sprout.”
Frances Kilmer

We hope to instill a love of learning which will stay with our students as they continue to question, analyze, explore, experience, wonder, and find joy in life and the world around them.

We welcome your interest in LRDS and hope you will come and see our school in action.
