Pine Ridge Preschool kids love to learn!

Pine Ridge Preschool is open to all children ages 3-5 years old. Our program provides a safe, nurturing and caring environment for every student to develop a sense of self and to grow emotionally through social interaction, intellectual stimulation, physical development and spiritual direction. Each month, students will focus on a new Fruit of the Spirit. For example, our September theme may be "kindness" and some of our lessons, art projects, games and other activities will emphasize that virtue. Our mission is to provide a developmentally appropriate curriculum for 3-5 year olds in a friendly, caring, faith-centered environment that nurtures a love for learning in each child.

Parents are encouraged to be involved in their children's preschool experience by volunteering at classroom parties and activities.
