Northwest Preschool

A note from our Director:

Thank you for wanting to find out more about Northwest Preschool! As a Preschool Director for almost 20 years I am blessed to have spent the last five at Northwest. We place an emphasis on Bible teaching and our dedicated teachers take great care to show the love of God in an environment where children can grow spiritually, physically, socially, and emotionally. It is a nurturing environment and if a 2-day program works with your family's schedule, I would love to answer any questions or give you a tour to see if we could be a good fit for your child.

Staffing

Each room is staffed with two teachers who have passed a criminal background check and are current in CPR and First Aid training. Lead Teachers in Threes and Fours classes have their Teaching Certification.

Curriculum

Our teaching staff is dedicated to making the Preschool program a positive learning experience. We have a well-planned curriculum, which provides a teaching topic for each month. The activities are organized around the topics using art, music, and fine motor skills, listening skills, cognitive skills and group time. The daily schedule includes both vigorous and quiet indoor activities and playground time. Because we are a Christian program, Bible stories, principles and scripture are used throughout the week.

Ones and Twos use the Toddler Experience curriculum. Threes and Fours use a Teacher Developed Thematic curriculum along with Zoo Phonics (an interactive phonics program).

All ages attend Music class on Thursdays, and Twos through Fours attend Chapel each Tuesday.

Lunch/Snacks

Parents sign up to bring weekly snacks for their child’s class. A lunch should be brought from home made up of finger foods that can be served with little assistance. Please do not send nut products in your child’s lunch or as a snack, as there are many nut allergies among children and staff.

Potty Training

Children entering a Threes class should be potty trained by the start of school. They should be able to pull their underwear up and down by themselves and use the restroom with minimal assistance.

Rest Time

A formal rest time is provided each day for Ones and Twos classes. A recording of quiet music is played while the children rest. If you do not want your child to rest on campus, they can be picked up between 12:00–12:30 p.m. immediately following lunch (check with teacher for specific time).

Threes and Fours classes have a rest period, but the children are not expected to sleep. Should a child in a Threes or Fours class fall asleep they will be allowed to remain asleep. After the brief rest period, the children that are awake will participate in planned afternoon centers.

Admission

Registration begins each January for the upcoming school year. Priority enrollment is given to current Preschool families followed by Northwest Bible Church attendees. Registration is then opened to the public and age group registration form links are posted on this page.
