Northwest Preschool

A note from our Director:

Thank you for wanting to find out more about Northwest Preschool! As a Preschool Director for 20 plus years I am blessed to have spent the last nine years 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.

Northwest Kids' Health Policy

We're committed to keeping our Northwest Preschool kids safe.  View our Health Policy to see our precautions and requirements.


Days and Times

Our program meets on Tuesdays and Thursday (both days required) from 9 AM—2 PM. We meet September through May and typically follow the DISD holiday calendar. The current calendar can be found under Resources.


We accept children ages 12 months through 4 years old by September 1 of class year. Children who are 5 years and not currently enrolled in kindergarten may enroll in the program.


Tuition is payable monthly and due on the first day of each month (or the first school day after the 1st). A late fee of $20 will be charged for tuition payment made after the 10th of each month.  See below for Online Payment links.

Enrollment Fee must be paid online as part of the registration process.  Supply Fee and Monthly Tuition can be paid by check or cash to the Preschool Office, or online with credit card or e-check.

2024-2025 Tuition and Fees will be as follows:
Monthly Tuition: $420/month (All age groups)
Supply Fee: $150/year

Tuition is collected through the Brightwheel App.  You can set up autopay or pay monthly by credit/debit card or ACH.  Beginning 24/25 the payment processing fees will be added to your payments.  The ACH option carries a much lower processing fee of 0.6% with a $2.00 max, especially if you want to pay for the semester or year as a whole.  Credit card payments are charged a 2.95% processing fee.

Teacher/Child Ratios

12-17 Months











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 PK-3 and PK-4 classes have their Teaching Certification.


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. PK-3 and PK-4 classes use a Teacher Developed Thematic curriculum along with Zoo Phonics (an interactive phonics program).

All ages attend Music & Movement class once each week, and Twos through PK-4 attend Chapel weekly.


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 PK-3 class must 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).

PK-3and PK-4 classes have a rest period, but the children are not expected to sleep. Should a child in a PK-3 or PK-4 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.


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.
