Admissions

Enrollment for 2022-2023 opens January 25!

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.

With a commitment to return to the quality program we know and love, we are launching a phased reopening. In the 2022-2023 school year, we plan to intentionally focus on the return of our M/W/F Pre-Kindergarten program (with optional Pre-K Lunch Bunch, too!) and our once-a-week Mom’s Morning Out program. We anticipate then confidently building on our success by welcoming the return of the 3s program in the 2023-2024 school year. Students previously eligible for NCP’s junior kindergarten (JK) program (5 years old by January 31, 2023) will continue to be welcomed to apply to NorthCreek Academy’s transitional kindergarten (TK) program.

Enrollment is open to all preschool children of the community. 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.
