Preschool

Northland Christian School is committed to providing a Christ-centered environment that creates an educational experience of challenges, security, growth, and fulfillment. Our principle goal is to work with the family and church to build a firm foundation for further development through educational excellence and Biblical values. The school is dedicated to the development of Christian leaders for our families, churches, community, country, and world. Northland Christian Preschool is a coeducational day program for students aged 3 - 4 years old.

Enrollment Overview

Northland Christian Preschool operates on a traditional school calendar, Monday through Friday, 8:15 a.m. to 3:35 p.m. Re-enrollment for currently enrolled students for the upcoming school year and summer program begins in February. Enrollment for new students will begin after current families have enrolled. Students may continue to be enrolled throughout the year on a space available basis. 

Curriculum Overview

Educational research indicates that preschool-aged children are in the “preoperational” stage of learning – needing to learn from actual objects – and on the threshold of the “concrete-operational” stage – being able to learn from symbols and signs (reading, writing, and arithmetic skills are sign/symbol based). Additionally children enter another threshold when they participate in the formal school setting. Northland recognizes these critical thresholds. Consequently, the preschool program relies heavily on active, child-initiated learning experiences. Outcomes include the development of dispositions important to lifelong learning – initiative, curiosity, trust, confidence, independence, responsibility, and divergent thinking. As children progress through the program, symbol/sign activities are introduced to prepare them for the elementary program.
 

Preschool: Ages 3-4

Classes are designed to encourage children to become active participants in exploration, experimentation, and observation. This 5-day (M-F) program is designed to prepare children for kindergarten. A hot lunch is available through The Healthy Lunchbox. Children in this program wear school uniforms which are purchased from the Cougar Store. Instruction includes alphabet, sound and letter association, language, math, science, and social studies activities. Bible stories are taught each day and children attend chapel each week. Preschool students participate in library and field trip activities. On-going assessments are formally discussed at individual parent conferences in October and at the request of either party (parent or school). Teachers provide regular informal input regarding student development.
