RIVIERA UNITED METHODIST PRESCHOOL
Riviera United Methodist Preschool (R.U.M.P.) is a developmental preschool based in Redondo Beach. It operates a parent-participation program, where the school recognizes parents as teachers and sees their involvement in preschool education as a natural stage of development.
In recent years the school was struggling to meet their full capacity and were also attracting parents who did not understand the parent co-op program.
The new website was designed with these issues in mind. It included information on the parent-participation program: the daily schedule, the teachers; the facilities; the tuition fees and admission; the on-site sibling nursery (a unique selling point for the school) and the additional Pre-K program. The school’s philosophy of ‘learn through play’ was strongly represented, with images showing R.U.M.P. students having fun in a clean and safe environment. The R.U.M.P. ABC homepage demonstrated that a solid curriculum underlined the ‘learn through play' philosophy. The testimonials page ensured that its well-known reputation was upheld.
Emily identified information gaps, organized the structure, co-wrote the pages and built the website. She also took many of the photos. This is where she learned that taking pictures of children is one of the hardest things (ever).
