Riverview School

133 South Water Street

Henderson KY 42420



Riverview School has been operating in Henderson, Kentucky since September 1953.  It has operated continuously since that time through the efforts of volunteers and support from the community.  Riverview provides educational programs, respite care, and emotional support for preschool children having special needs and their families.  The ultimate goal is to lead children toward their own sense of self-worth and independence by preparing them for classes within the public school system with quality educational and rehabilitative services.


Our Students come to Riverview through referrals, foster parent programs, and the court system.  They suffer a broad range of physical or emotional problems, including kidney disease, schizophrenia, HIV, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, autism, fetal alcohol syndrome, ADHD, visual impairment, and hearing problems as well as children who have suffered abuse or neglect.  No child is turned away from Riverview School because of inability to pay. 


Please contact us if you have any questions, any suggestions, or have a student who would benefit from our services.


Riverview School provides services to preschool children with special needs through donations made through the United Way, Henderson, Henderson County, local businesses, and generous individuals from local communities.  If you would like to help the students of Riverview School, please contact us at the email addresses or the phone number listed on this page.
