Making the transition from home to school is easier in a safe, loving environment.
Pre-Kindergarten is a time of discovery. Our youngest “eaglets” eagerly embrace learning in classrooms where they are loved and known by their teacher. Your child will experience intellectual, spiritual, social and physical development, as curious minds learn best when provided multiple opportunities to play, collaborate, explore and discover.
Our pre-kindergarten program takes advantage of the natural ability children have to learn and establishes a firm foundation for reading, writing, math and socialization. To do this, we expose students to a variety of learning experiences in: Bible lessons, social skills, art and music, science, dramatic play, writing, literacy, math and number sense, fine and gross motor skills, and strategic thinking skills using different manipulatives such as games or puzzles.
Our program leads children to develop socialization and readiness skills through participation in activities developmentally appropriate to their age level. We encourage our children to reach their full potential while fostering a joy of learning in a Christ-centered learning community.
Our pre-kindergarten curriculum aligns with the academic standards and scope and sequence that spans all grades at Northside.
Northside Christian School is a member of the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI), and our pre-kindergarten program is licensed annually by the Minnesota Department of Human Resources.
