Be a part of the discovery
For 25 years we have nurtured children’s passion for discovery using open-ended learning. Our goal is to give the adventurers, creators, athletes, artists, and inventors of tomorrow the tools they need to explore their world and achieve their full potential.
Wisdom begins in wonder
Ridley Orchard students are encouraged to inquire, to wonder why, to question how—and to challenge why not. We’re here to enhance their lives and to help them discover who they are (and what they could one day become).
Taking inspiration from Montessori and Reggio early learning methodologies, your child receives an individualized education developed by utilizing thoughtful observation, decades of child development experience, and a supportive emerging program plan.
We provide a dynamic slate of specialty programs that expose children to a wide range of ideas and experiences.
Toddler, Preschool, and Kindergarten students learn and explore in an engaging play-based environment.
Our dynamic programming is unique, supportive, and nurturing to suit your

Birthdays, Holidays, and more! A variety of party options to suit each family.
