Welcome to Our School

Welcome to Young School of Kendall Ridge, located in Columbia! Our school is conveniently located in the Long Reach Village area of Columbia across from the Long Reach Community Pool.

We’re honored to have been the first Young School and have continued serving children as young as infants up through pre-kindergarten to this day. We offer flexible full- and part-time schedule options in our programs to meet your family’s needs. Our curriculum is inspired by two internationally acclaimed programs: Resources for Infant Educarers (RIE) and the Reggio Emilia approach.

Classes are taught by our dedicated teaching staff who participate in ongoing professional development and training, including maintaining current Infant/Child First Aid and CPR certifications.

I invite you to schedule a tour to experience what makes our school special and the perfect place for your child to grow and learn. I look forward to getting to know you and your family very soon!

I was drawn to early childhood education when researching different philosophies of education. The Reggio Emilia approach to education inspired me to become the educator I am today. I appreciate and value the 100 languages of children, the arts integrative approach to learning and honoring the individual's ideas and perceptions of the world. I continue to find joy and inspiration from children each day!
