Our Mission is to provide an environment where children love to learn and learn with love.  We aim to encourage children’s innate curiosity as they explore the world around them. The foundation of this learning comes through hands on activities. We will encourage children’s social maturity through interactions with peers. Through activities and play children learn, respect, responsibility, accountability, and empathy for others.


We understand that your child comes to us with unique experiences, interests and learning styles. Our goal is to encourage children to explore areas that interest them.  We will provide opportunities for them to learn, play, share, and socialize.

All children are welcome to our program without regard to race, religion, sex, or national origin.  We encourage and welcome parental participation.


Hope Ridge Preschool was established in 1967 as an outreach ministry of Hope Ridge United Methodist Church and incorporated in 2007. The preschool receives leadership and guidance through the Hope Ridge Preschool Council. We are licensed by the State of Ohio, and we are active members of NAEYC (National Association of the Education of Young Children).


Hope Ridge Preschool strives to provide an early care and education program whose level of quality exceeds Ohio’s child care licensing standards. Early school experiences last a lifetime. Your child has approximately 1,800 days from the day they are born until they enter kindergarten. What happens on this journey lays the foundation for school and life success!​


We are located in the child education wing of Hope Ridge United Methodist Church.  Our facility includes a fenced, outdoor playground area and daily access to large indoor rooms for active play.
