About Us

Reveille Weekday School is a half-day faith-based early childhood program where the foundations of learning are established and nurtured. Reveille United Methodist Church began ministering to young families through the Reveille Weekday School in 1966. In the heart of the Near West End, many families walk or bike to school, but we also attract families throughout Richmond and the surrounding counties. The school enjoys many traditions dating back decades, including our Thanksgiving pie baking event, which started in 1969, and remains a pillar of our fall schedule today.


Our program serves children ages 12 months through Junior Kindergarten and uses a state-vetted curriculum that focuses on student and teacher interactions as well as developmental learning objectives. Teachers complete informal and formal assessments annually, and portfolios are kept along with anecdotal notes for each child in all toddler and preschool classes. Reveille Weekday School has a long history of attracting talented teachers and staff, as well as loving families. Almost three-quarters of our staff have either children or grandchildren (or both) who attended Reveille Weekday School, and some of our current students are second-generation families.  The Reveille Weekday School staff seeks to exemplify God’s love by providing care and by showing respect for each child as a unique and valued person.
