Philosophy

Ridgecrest Weekday School Age Ministry has been established to provide a spiritual atmosphere and a positive choice of quality care for children. Ridgecrest Baptist Church considers it a vital part of its ministry to this community.  The center is focused on helping children develop cognitively and emotionally, with special attention to a healthy self-image, self-identity and good socialization skills.  It is vital for a child to learn and explore within loving limitations.  We are your extension of home.
