Walnut Ridge Preschool Ministry

WR Preschool Ministry provides Biblical teaching and childcare services for children from Birth to Pre-K during church services and Sunday School hours.

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

Children are a Gift from God, Psalm 127:3

The purpose of Ridge Kids Early Childhood, as a ministry to the community, is to provide a safe and nurturing environment for children to grow spiritually, socially, physically, and emotionally. We believe that young children learn through their five senses and that these senses are developed through hands on activities. Playing is learning.

We want our children to feel loved, safe and secure. Our goal is to help children grow and develop in Jesus. Growth and development is a process, not an event in children.

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.
