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.

Enrollment is 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.
