Rivermont Collegiate

Rivermont Collegiate’s mission is to empower academically driven students by cultivating their intellect, character, and creativity.

Three Pillars

  • Intellect: given challenge, guidance, and time becomes wisdom
  • Character: demonstrated through a strong sense of personal and social responsibility
  • Creativity: cultivates innovative thinkers who respond inventively to unknown challenges, unhindered by conventional frameworks

Creativity, combined with Intellect and Character, calls Rivermont Lions to serve others and the world at large.

Redeemer Preschool

Redeemer Preschool provides time for quality education in a warm and friendly atmosphere where preschool children can learn to play creatively with one another through hands-on experiences.  With varied learning activities in a non-competitive environment, the children will be introduced to language development, pre-reading skills, pre-math skills, science, creative movement, art, and music. Each child learns to understand the role of others and develops physical, social, intellectual, and emotional skills and self-reliance at his/her own rate of progress.

Hand in Hand QC

We offer four child care classrooms that offer discovery, creativity, and development in a safe, inclusive environment. Hand in Hand’s inclusive childcare program is unique in the Quad Cities. Many childcare facilities can’t accommodate every child’s needs or adapt activities for different abilities, but that’s exactly what we pride ourselves on.
