Greetings and welcome to Ridgeway Early Learning Center, the home of the Blue Jays! I am thrilled that you have decided to view our school’s website in order to learn more about the wonderful students, staff, and programs we have to offer. I am also beyond proud to serve as leader of the only all pre-k facility within the Shelby County School district. It is my goal to create strong and collaborative relationships with staff, parents, and the community. As a founding teacher at RELC, I can honestly say that teachers and staff have been committed to providing excellence for pre-k students since 2009. We strive daily to continue our tradition of excellence by providing pre-k students and parents with an early learning experience that will ensure kindergarten readiness.

We encourage you to visit our wonderful school and see firsthand that we are a school committed to children. You will find that RELC is a vibrant and engaging community of teachers and learners.
