Temple Beth El Child Development Center (herein ``TBECDC``) has a rich heritage and an excellent reputation within the community of Riverside.

In 1965, the original Riverside Temple Beth El Nursery School was born out of a vision of a few Temple families, who desired a non-denominational, non-sectarian nursery school in their neighborhood for children to attend. Since 1965, the center has evolved, incorporating numerous program improvements and enhancements in response to the changing needs of the community and the requests of school families, continuing as non-denominational and non-sectarian.
In its on-going pursuit to provide the best services, TBECDC undertook the extensive and prestigious accreditation process from National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). Accreditation was successfully completed in 1993, again in May 2000, and August 2003. WE ARE PROUD to have been one of the first in the country to achieve re-accreditation in 2008 with NAEYC under their new rigorous, comprehensive, and prestigious system. Thank you for your participation and support as we earned accreditation renewal in July 2013 effective through July 2018!
