Registration is Open for Fall 2021!

We know that selecting the right preschool for your child is a big and often confusing decision. There are many choices and we understand that you want to be certain that you have made the best choice for your child. At Kids on the Ridge Weekday Preschool, we embrace the truth that God made us each unique. He gave us each special giftings, talents and abilities. We all learn at different rates and in different ways. With this in mind, we provide each child with engaging lessons and a variety of activities that make learning fun and nurture who they are in Christ.

Our current 2,000 square foot facility is a bright and positive learning environment that includes large classrooms with over 500 square feet of indoor play area. In early 2021, the preschool is excited to be moving into a brand new Church on the Ridge facility that adds new brightly lit classrooms, two large indoor soft play areas, a covered outdoor play area and warm inviting location for waiting parents.

Our learning center provides a warm, safe and fun environment that helps your child develop emotionally, intellectually, physically, socially, and spiritually. Classrooms and play areas are designed to be inviting and engaging as your child explores new horizons.

Our teachers and environments help your child discover that learning is fun, while they make new friends and build strong relationships. We partner with you in your child’s development.

Program Offerings

Little's Class

This is your child’s first step in preparing for preschool. Designed for children who are 2 ½ by August 31st, we use play-based activities and hands-on learning that turn your little one’s sense of curiosity into opportunities for learning and building confidence. We help them build routines, learn to share, how to be a friend and using their words to communicate their ideas. We focus on God’s love for each one of us.

3's Class

Your child begins to learn through God’s 7 Days of Creation (preschool biblical learning) as it is shared throughout their day – in circle time, science, self-care, music and movement and activities that introduce letters, numbers and colors. As they learn to follow structure and routine in a loving Christian environment, we work on social skills like initiating play, sharing, and making decisions with friends. We also introduce self-care skills such as cleaning up their space, keeping track of personal items and independently using the restroom. Your child is also introduced to skills that foster remembering and following multistep directions. This class is targeted toward children who are 3 years old by August 31st. 

4's Class
In this love-filled learning environment, your child learns and practices the skills they need to be successful in kindergarten, including writing their name, recognizing letters/numbers and classroom etiquette. Circle time emphasizes class theme, 7 Days of Creation, sound of the week, sharing, handwriting, number concepts 1-20, letter sounds, pre-reading phonics, songs and art. This is a busy room and the children are given the freedom to choose learning materials, guided by the teacher to ensure that each student is progressing towards Kindergarten readiness. This class is targeted toward children who are 4 years old by August 31st.
Enrichment (Extended Day)
The Enrichment Program is for children in the 3’s, 4’s and PM classes who desire extra time for music, movement, crafting, lunch (bring from home), and learning fun for continued social and academic development. Children will need to bring a healthy lunch to enjoy at school with friends. Due to allergies, we do not allow peanut butter or nuts of any kind.
Jr. Kindergarten Class
Jr. Kindergarten is a year for children to receive additional development time to grow emotionally, physically and academically in a nurturing Christian school environment. Your child will work on reading skills (letters, phonics, sight words), writing (“Handwriting Without Tears”), math (“Singapore Early Bird Math Common Core Edition”), and ten frame math (i.e. counting, addition and subtraction). The class will focus on God’s 7 Days of Creation, Bible verse memorization, circle time, art, science, music and movement. Enjoying lunch together will foster independence and enhance their personal responsibility (i.e. manners, cooperation, cleanup, and time management).
Monthly Chapel

Each month the children gather to attend Chapel, where they get to sing, pray and hear about a wonderful story from the Bible. Chapel is led by Church on the Ridge’s Student Ministries Pastors.

Summer Day Camp

Throughout the summer, KOTR Weekday Preschool and Student Ministries offer fun and affordable theme-based day camps for preschoolers. Each camp is a 4 day camp and runs Monday – Thursday 9:30 AM to 12:30 PM. Each child is asked to bring a nutritious lunch to enjoy while socializing with other campers. The camp schedule will be released in March.
