“Creativity seems to emerge from multiple experiences, coupled with well supported development of personal resources, including a sense of freedom to venture beyond the known” –Loris Malaguzzi

As a Reggio Emilia Inspired Riverside Magnet School (Formerly Early Childhood Magnet School) we are committed to finding resources in and around our neighborhood. Being a Magnet School we have children who come from various towns around the state. This allows us to provide unique experiences for our children and lends itself perfectly to creating rich opportunities for the children in our school community.

We are looking for Businesses and Organizations to share in the joy of learning with our children and who are interested in partnering with our school.

The types of Partnerships we are looking for are:

  • Field trip opportunities
  • Donations of materials
  • Site Visits to our School to share expertise
  • Professional Development for staff and/or families
  • Community Spaces for workshops
  • Family Events in the Community
  • Discounts/ memberships for families

Some of our partners include:

  • Goodwin College (East Hartford)
  • CT River Academy (East Hartford)
  • Shop Rite (East Hartford)
  • East Hartford Public Library
  • Home Depot (East Hartford)
  • Billings Forge (Hartford)
  • Arts For Learning (Hamden)
