Part Time Preschool Program

Explorer Room

Our part-time preschool program provides young children, ages 3-5 years, with the active, hands-on environment they need to be explorers, discoverers, problem-solvers, and inventors. The most important goal of our curriculum is to help children become active, enthusiastic learners. We believe that play enables children to achieve that key goal.

Our experienced, degreed teachers carefully plan for and prepare the environment and materials to expand upon the interests of children and enhance their development. This curriculum incorporates creative exploration of literature and writing materials, art materials, dramatic play props, music, sensory materials, cooking, and materials of their own construction. Our program is further enhanced by frequent field trips, family participation, and family social and educational events.

Children must be three years old by Sept. 1, and be potty-trained to attend preschool.

Parents Co-Operative Preschool Program

Tiger Room

Our Parents Cooperative Preschool provides a high quality preschool experience for children ages 3-5 years, while keeping fees low and parent involvement high. This program provides a small community atmosphere with a class size of 16 children, with two NBCC teachers and the parents also serving as assistant teachers in the cooperative environment. We are happy to be able to provide this alternative preschool for families who want to be an integral part of their children’s early childhood care and education.

Parent involvement is the foundation of the Cooperative Preschool. Because tuition is kept so low, parents also are needed to help staff the preschool. Each day one parent is needed to act as assistant teacher. This provides the parents with a wonderful opportunity to be a part of their child’s education and also to be a part of the larger community of children and families. The children benefit from the diversity the cooperative approach brings to them. According to the number of families enrolled in the Cooperative Preschool on each day, parents may be required to assist one to four days each month. Every family must participate in this way to be enrolled in the program.
