Equipping children for future academic success while teaching them Christian values that help develop social skills, emotional health, and cognitive thinking.

Registration for preschool will be in December/January each year. There is a $75 non-refundable registration fee.

We have preschool classrooms set-up for children ages three to five. Children must be three by September 15 for three-year-old preschool, four by September 15 for four-year-old preschool and five by September 15 for five-year-old preschool.

All children must be potty-trained.

At this time we do not offer financial assistance.

Preschool @ The Ridge staff are trained and to Handwriting Without Tears “Get Set for School” for writing, literacy and math. Children will also learn Bible stories and verses as we help them develop socially, emotionally, and cognitively.

Rooms are set up with learning centers such for writing, art, drama, science, discovery, math, reading, and sensory. Our classrooms are filled with materials and activities to encourage exploration.  We believe the environment should be rich in language and hands on learning.

Our daily schedule includes both large group and small group time. In small group time, students work on a variety of personal developmental skills along side an instructor. During large group time we will introduce themes and daily activities.

We have the BEST preschool teachers in Ankeny! Your child will love coming to learn from the very best, we guarantee it.

Our facility is one of the safest in Ankeny. Doors to the preschool area are locked at all times. Our staff is trained to I.D. individuals and check pick-up information before releasing a child to anyone.

We will follow the Ankeny calendar for days off and weather related decisions.
