Admissions

Preschool

NorthCreek Preschool offers extraordinary opportunities for educational, social and physical growth. Opportunities are provided for being with other children in a setting conducive to the development of wholesome relationships and a respect for others. Learning activities are designed to develop kindergarten readiness while remembering that children learn best through active involvement in age-appropriate experiences.

Since 1970, NorthCreek Preschool has been known as a nurturing home-away-from-home for both children and parents, the warm place many little ones first learn to love school, love their teachers and friends, and, most importantly, love God.

Though we had hopes for a different plan, we’ve come to the painful decision that it’s best that preschool programming again be suspended for the 2021-2022 school year. We eagerly anticipate the fall 2022 grand re-opening of NorthCreek Preschool and NorthCreek Mom’s Morning Out, and again welcoming children to our cozy classrooms – up close and personal, laughing, learning, and growing together with friends and teachers – the NorthCreek Preschool way for nearly 50 years! In anticipation of preschool’s return, we invite you to learn more about our 3s and Pre-K programs.

NorthCreek Academy’s Transitional Kindergarten class is specifically designed for children who will benefit from a two-year kindergarten program.

When our doors re-open, enrollment will be open to all preschool children of the community. The minimum age for our licensed preschool is three years by October 31st. Each child must be toilet trained. Admission is made without regard to race, color, religion, or national origin. Each child admitted must be determined to be ready for the type of group experience that the school offers. Children with special needs are considered individually.

VISITOR DAYS | 9:15-11:45AM | Welcome Center

Visitor Days are a great way for prospective families to see us in action. They allow prospective families to take a closer look at NorthCreek Academy. Led by our Student Council members, these days are a unique opportunity to see what an actual day in the classroom is like. NorthCreek Academy holds two to three Visitor Days per year. The Kindergarten Visitor Day is offered additionally for those looking at our kindergarten program. Unfortunately, there are no remaining Academy Visitor Days for this school year, but prospective parents are encouraged to schedule a tour of our school.

To schedule a tour, call our registrar, Ranetta Ericks, at 925.627.4435.
