At Riverbend Christian Preschool, we celebrate many thematic social events during the school year which include reflections of Christian teachings. These events include Christmas and Easter Concerts, Mother's Day Teas and monthly Chapel visits with the Pastor. We also occasionally host special coffee times for parents and siblings which encourage fellowship and connections between families.
We host special guests at the school to provide hands-on experience for different themes. Past guests have included John Janzen Nature Centre, Fort Edmonton Park, Edmonton Valley Zoo, Musical Munchkins and the Edmonton Public Library.
On Saturday, May 24th, 2014, Riverbend Christian Preschool celebrated our 20th Anniversary with a Family Fun Event!
Upwards of 350 people attended the event and enjoyed entertainment by Dan the Balloon Man, The Joe Show Illusions and Laughs, Caricaturist Robert Woodbury, Face Painter P’Wan and an obstacle course and bouncer from Jiant Jumpers. The sanctuary was transformed into The Smart Cookie Café where guests were served specialty coffees and cookies while reminiscing and viewing photo albums and all twenty years of class photos.

Thank you to all who came out to help us celebrate, to the members of our congregation of Riverbend Lutheran Church for their support and assistance, and also to those who couldn’t attend, but sent messages about their fond memories of their experience with RCP! Thanks be to God for blessing us with a beautiful day to celebrate what He has done at RCP for the past 20 years!
