While our school is young, our Preschool has been around for 40+ years. We have hundreds of Academy alumni but we have thousands of Preschool alumni. NorthCreek graduates are serving the Lord in so many different ways and in so many different places. We would love to hear from you. Keep us posted on where you are and what life is like as an adult. Simply share your story with us using the link below or even come visit us if you’re in town.

Our goal here is to encourage former students to maintain a connection to both NorthCreek and each other. Please follow us on Facebook and Instagram to stay connected.


As a ministry of NorthCreek Church, all of our employees are professing Christians with a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and a commitment to a local church whose doctrinal positions are in harmony with that of NorthCreek. Being that we are a Christian school, we want our staff to share God’s truths with the children and their families. Before considering employment at NorthCreek, we encourage you to think through your personal testimony concerning your relationship with Christ. Then, get a feel of our beliefs by reading NorthCreek’s Statement of Faith and looking through the NorthCreek Church website.

NorthCreek Academy

Kindergarten – 8th Grade

We’re always interested in hearing from candidates who are looking for a teaching ministry, or perhaps desire a role in a support staff position within our school.

We anticipate that we will have a couple of openings for fulltime elementary teacher positions starting in the fall (August) of 2019.

Teachers at the Academy must hold a Bachelor’s degree. A teaching credential, and/or certification with ACSI is preferable, as is classroom experience.

If you meet the qualifications and would like to learn more about any of the open positions, please send your resume to Carolynn Fox at or call her at 925-954-6325.  We’d love to connect and pray with you as you discern God’s possible leading to a ministry with children and their parents at NorthCreek Academy.

NorthCreek Preschool

Mom’s Morning Out – Junior Kindergarten

NorthCreek Preschool is blessed to have a staff who are not only highly professional but who also reflect their faithfulness to God in their daily interaction with children, parents and other staff members.

Teachers must have the state licensing requirement of 12 Early Childhood Education units. These units must come from one core course in each of the following areas: child growth and development, child/family/community or child and family relations, and program/curriculum. Experience working with children in a voluntary or paid position is also a state licensing requirement.

Our preschool follows a school year calendar. We begin at the end of August and end in the beginning of June. Classes meet from one to five days a week. Each class is three hours long. Because of this schedule, most of our staff work part-time.

We offer such benefits as a flex plan for medical expenses, health benefits, tuition discounts, paid holidays, etc. for employees that meet the proper requirements. Salary is determined on a sliding scale depending on number or ECE units and experience.

If you would like to inquire about potential Preschool employment, please email your resume to Esther McClellan at or call the Preschool office at 925-954-6353.
