In a nutshell...

In a Nutshell ...

The Ridge School is a New York State-registered family daycare. We care for children who are between the ages of six weeks and five years old. Our caregivers are certified in CPR and first aid. We are open daily, Monday through Friday, from 7:00 am until 4:30 pm.

Ridge School

Welcome to The Ridge School!

Welcome to our school and to our website. We encourage visitors to explore our site. We have provided information about our philosophy and our goals. As you read, you will quickly see that we love children. We consider caring for children to be a privilege as well as a great responsbility. You will also find practical information about our policies and information. Application and permission forms are provided here, too, for your convenience.

The Ridge School is new in Queensbury but is an immediate successor to The Hartman School, which operated in Granville, NY, from 2009 until 2014. Our years of experience at The Hartman School have helped us devise policies and procedures that allow us to provide safe, warm and nurturing care for children who are enrolled at our School.

Recently Renovated Space

We have recently renovated our 700 square feet at our daycare space to allow more room for fun and play. See the photo gallery for photos.

Our Goals

At The Ridge, we believe that children should be allowed to grow at their own pace and to learn in ways that help them become confident in themselves as learners. We have three primary goals:

  • To provide a safe, nurturing environment for children.
  • To help children learn about themselves and the world around them through play and exploration.
  • To encourage children to feel good about themselves as learners.

These goals provide guidance for everything that we do in our programs. Children at The Ridge Daycare are given the opportunity to explore, experiment, learn and have fun in a safe and healthy way.
