Ridge Community Preschool

Welcome to Ridge Community Preschool!

We provide children with a safe, encouraging learning environment. We believe that children learn best in a child-centered program. Our dedicated teachers design activities to meet the needs of both individual children and groups of children. Through age-appropriate, hands-on activities, we nurture communication, socialization and confidence-building in our students.

Meet our Director
Welcome to the Ridge Community Preschool page!
Hi, my name is Stayce Christ and I am the Director and a full-time teacher. My 30 years of experience in early childhood education has offered me a variety of roles: lead and classroom teacher; substitute; daycare teacher; and, director.
I attended Purdue University and have an Associate of Arts degree in Early Childhood Education. Through conferences—including the National Association for the Education of Young Children—additional training, and professional development seminars, I keep updated to the needs of young children in our changing world.
About Our School
Located in a church, many people would assume that Ridge Community Preschool is a setting only for Christians or church-goers. This is not the case, and we have a diverse student population. We are a “hands-on,” developmentally-appropriate preschool that serves the entire northwest Indiana community and the south Chicago suburbs.
Thank you for your interest in our preschool and the opportunity to share in the early education of your child. Please call us for more information, or come for a visit and see what we’re all about!
