Welcome to Ridgeway Early Learning Center, home of the Blue Jays! I am thrilled that you have decided to view our school website. While here, you will learn more about our students, staff, and the numerous activities and programs we have to offer.

I am beyond proud to serve as leader of the BEST pre-k school within the Memphis-Shelby County School district. It is my goal to create strong and collaborative relationships with staff, students, families, and the local community. As one of the original 11 founding RELC teachers, I know firsthand that RELC teachers and staff have been committed to providing excellence for pre-k students since 2009. We strive daily to continue our established tradition of excellence by providing our pre-k students and their families with an early learning experience that will ensure kindergarten readiness.

I encourage you to visit our wonderful school and see for yourself that we are committed to early childhood excellence and successful learning outcomes for all children. You will definitely leave inspired!
