The Kid Ranch Christian Preschool closed at the end of December.

According to an email to families, the center closed because it was “lacking financially.”

“It is with deep regret and a profound sense of responsibility that I inform you that, despite our best endeavors, we were unable to solidify the necessary arrangements to keep the school's doors open,” the email states.

The preschool served as an early learning center for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years old.

Owner Destini Evans said the preschool was open for almost 26 years.

"I started as Lil' PeeWee's Childcare and Learning Center, and changed the name back in 2015 when my partner in Lil' PeeWee's retired," Evans said in an email.
