Welcome to Northminster Community Preschool!
Since our school was organized in 1972, we have been dedicated to providing a play based program for child development in a Christian atmosphere. We provide learning experiences for children of the church membership and the community in an environment which encourages the child to:
- Ask questions.
- Explore and experiment.
- Develop a new security and independence in the world outside the home.
- Make friends and learn to interact with other children and adults.
Under the leadership of qualified teachers, the preschool classes include a balance of guided play activities, creative artwork, music and movement, outdoor and indoor large muscle play, language development, story time and various other group activities.
The school is non-profit and self-supporting, functioning as a service to the community with the approval of the Session and Christian Education Committee of Northminster Presbyterian Church. Classes are staffed with qualified, experienced teachers and assistants. All staff members are trained and certified by the American Heart Association in Pediatric CPR and Emergency First Aid Procedures for infants and children. The school is licensed to operate by the Marion County Board of Health and is inspected annually.
We are grateful to Northminster Presbyterian Church for its support and for sharing its facilities with us. We are also grateful to our parents for their confidence in us, their enthusiasm, and their wonderful children, without whom we would have no purpose.
