About Ridgegate Elem Pre-K
Ridgegate Elem Pre-K is a public pre-kindergarten program serving the parents and families of Houston. As a pre-k, Ridgegate Elem Pre-K provides a structured, stable learning environment that replicates the best of the formal school years ahead and is hosted on the same campus where they may even be able to attend kindergarten once they graduate pre-k. Pre-k provides more resources and opportunities for students to explore the world around them, as well as a bevy of peers and socialization opportunities. With a part-time schedule, as well, Ridgegate Elem Pre-K gives Houston parents a structured environment that their children can learn in for parts of the week. Children get the benefit of interacting with non-family adults, children of similar ages, and experiencing a wide range of stimulation without being apart from parents for too long. Ridgegate Elem Pre-K’s part-time schedule means parents get those precious hours away without giving up too much time together with their little ones. Ridgegate Elem Pre-K additionally takes a play-based approach to children's development and learning, facilitating education through interactive, hands-on activities that get children moving. Play-based environments structure their spaces to encourage students to move with independence, passion and explore at their own direction. Staff in these environments encourage and galvanize students to lean into their interests and build their own worlds in cooperation with their peers, and students gain cooperative, social and emotional skills as a result of these communal activities.
