Sundays 9:00, 10:15, & 11:30am **every Sunday except special church-wide events (1-2 times/year)**


The preschool ministry at WRBC offers various programs and events throughout the year to engage the preschooler with Biblical principals as well as build strong family relationships.


WHERE TO GO // Preschool is on the first floor of the building. If you enter through the main doors of the building, we are to the right of the staircase, through the double glass doors.HOW TO SIGN IN// Stop at the preschool welcome desk. One of our preschool volunteers will help you with signing in and getting your child in the appropriate class. Your child will receive a numbered name tag and you will receive a tag with their number. For security during pick up, you will need to give your tag to your child’s teacher.

Ridge Kids Weekday Program

Ridge Kids ECP is a non-profit outreach ministry of Walnut Ridge Baptist Church. We opened our doors in August 2000, because our Pastor, Randy Weeaks, envisioned a community need for a Christian–based Early Childhood.

To work as partners with families to provide a Christian environment that is intellectually stimulating and emotionally/socially wholesome. Allowing freedom within clear limits, each child is given the opportunity to grow and develop to his or her individual full potential. We believe that all children are a gift from God.

Ridge Kids uses the WEE LEARN curriculum published by Lifeway Christian Resources. Our weekly lesson plans are age-appropriate and include the developmental area of science, math, art, crafts, music, physical education and chapel. We offer an optional Computer Lab twice a month for children 3-5 years old. We strive to instill important Christian values that help your child with the journey of life.

Our staff is trained and experienced in Early Childhood Education. Our teachers are CPR and First Aid Certified. Our staff are both background checked and fingerprinted through the FBI. We participate regularly in conferences and workshops to enrich our skills. We are a state licensed facility.
