Classes and Curriculum

We Believe

that children learn best through play and hands-on experiences that involve them in an active and meaningful way.  Each classroom provides a variety of learning centers, activities and group experiences that strive to  meet children's individual interests and needs.  Partnering with parents, we create a warm and caring learning environment where children feel encouraged, valued  which enables them to discover, experiment and grow.

In the spirit of developing all children to their greatest potential, Northminster Preschool provides a high quality early childhood program to meet the early learning, development and spiritual needs of preschool children. In meeting the needs of children it is also important to be encouraging and supportive of  their families. As early childhood educators we are here to offer our expertise in child development and help with family and educational resources.
