Program & Curricula

Northminster Christian SchoolEarly Childhood Program

Our state licensed and CSI Accredited program is open to children of all races, nationalities, and faiths. To ensure a quality program, we maintain a low teacher/child ratio for more individual attention. We encourage parent involvement both at home and in the classroom. We desire to work collaboratively with every family to help each child flourish.

Our curriculum is designed to allow children to learn as they play. Each class works to develop language, gross and fine motor skills, problem solving, math and reading readiness, and social skills.  We enhance these skills through art, music, science, library, Spanish and garden.  We have weekly chapel services and God’s Word is integrated into every area of the academic program. We bring new experiences to the children through different events throughout the year including a science fair, community helper week, music week, rodeo day, field trips and more.
