What Our Families are Saying

Todd Family

We have been with Ridgecrest ELC for over 3 years now. They have been nothing short of exceptional! Everyone at the ELC has truly become like family to us. As a parent it’s important to know vour child is taken care of as you would take care of them, and here that happens! We are so very thankful that the Lord has placed us here.

Vaughn Family

When researching daycares for our son to attend, Ridgecrest quickly soared to our first choice. Ridgecrest ELC is a place where we know our son is safe, loved and given opportunities to learn and grow. The staff always reach beyond our expectations for care and seek to support our parental success.

Mathis Family

We felt an immense amount of pressure when searching for the right daycare for our son. The second we walked in Ridgecrest ELC we knew it was where the Lord was leading us. Our son has been at the ELC for two and a half years now and continues to grow in so many areas thanks to all of his wonderful teachers! The gift of knowing that our child is in a Christ-centered environment where he is loved, safe, and thriving each day is invaluable. Ridgecrest ELC has and continues to surpass our expectations. We cannot recommend them enough to anyone searching for the right place for their child!

While Ridgecrest ELC is exempt from state licensing, we strictly follow the minimum standard set by the State of Alabama regarding teacher/student ratios, health and medication policies, fire and health inspections, and space and environmental conditions.
