General Approach to Learning: Play-Based

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The goal of Northminster Preschool is to work with young children in an effort to foster and develop attitudes and skills that will support future learning. What a child sees, hears, smells, tastes, and touches are personal sources of information about the world in which he/she lives. Based upon information our students gain through our preschool and from interaction with the other children, they develop skills, attitudes, and knowledge that assist in life-long learning."
Excerpted from the preschool's website

A Typical Day

We have instruction in sign language, computers, art, Spanish and music in addition to basic pre-school curriculum.

Home-School Connection

Home-School Connection: From the Director

Parents are provided opportunities to visit individually with their child's teacher about the progress. There are open house opportunities, and parents are welcome to come visit their child's classrom. The teachers strive to maintain regular contact with the parents, and are willing to visit on a regular basis about any concerns parents have.


Separation is Handled through:

  • Pre-entry meetings with parents at school
