Thank you for considering Kids on the Ridge Preschool, a ministry of Church on the Ridge, as the place for your child to explore and grow!

Our preschool program offers a wide variety of enrichment and learning opportunities while our teaching team works to instill God’s love into the hearts of your child. At Kids on the Ridge, our dedicated and experienced teachers provide individualized programs to encourage your child’s spiritual, intellectual, physical, social and emotional development. Daily school schedules provide each child with a pathway to create, explore, problemsolve and interact with others.

We instill the importance of God’s love and Christian values within our classrooms. The school mission is to teach all children that God made them, loves them and has a perfect plan for them. It is important that preschool be a place of connection and a respectful partnership between families and teachers. God created us to live our lives in harmony and to have respect for one another. Our preschool program strengthens this idea of spiritual community, encouragement, and cooperation.

We look forward to a wonderful year with your precious little one!
In Him,
Mrs Shellie

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 5,000 square foot facility is a brightly lit and positive learning environment that includes eight large classrooms with over 1,500 square feet of indoor play area and a 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 and are actively toilet training, 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 and are actively toilet training.

4's Class (AM and PM)

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. This class is targeted toward children who are 3 ½ years old by August 31st.

Pre-Kindergarten (PreK) Class

The PreK Class is for children who will be 4 years old by August 31st, and intend to move directly into kindergarten the following year. Children in our PreK class develop the spiritual, educational, and social foundation needed for success in their transition to kindergarten. They are given the freedom to choose learning materials, guided by the teacher to foster the student’s confidence and independence. Circle time emphasizes class theme curriculum, sound of the week, sharing, handwriting, number concepts 1-20, songs and art.

Enrichment (Extended Day)

The Enrichment Program is for children in the 3’s, 4’s and PreK 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). This class is intended for children who are 4 ½ years old by August 31st.

Monthly Chapel

All school chapel is held once a month, where the children 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.
