A class tailored for children who miss the cut-off for 3s preschool by just a few months (children will turn 2 before April 30).

Predictable routines foster independence, while singing, painting and pretend play encourage creativity. Young minds grow naturally through exploration and experimentation, with skilled staff at hand to guide and support.

Pre-Kindergarten (must be 4 by 9/1)

The important Pre-K year builds on a foundation of confidence and curiosity as children explore, experiment, problem-solve, create and move in an environment structured to provide the learning experiences needed for success in the kindergarten year to come.  “Missteps” become steps towards understanding as children learn the value of making mistakes and testing new ideas in an environment of acceptance and respect.  

We will have 2 sections of our Pre-K class.  They run at the same time.

Enrichment Programs

Enrichment Registration is now open for Fall classes!! 
Fall 2022 Enrichments are for our future 4 Day and Pre-K students.
What is an enrichment? An enrichment is an add-on to your child’s school day that enriches their early childhood experience and extends the time they spend at school. Enrichments are created and run by the amazing staff at NFCNS and include activities outside the typical school day. Families can enroll in as many or as few enrichments as they like.
Enrichments occur immediately after (for 4 Day) or before (for Pre-K) your child’s preschool day.  On days when your child is signed up for enrichments, NFCNS teachers will bring them from their preschool class, to their enrichment class.  You will pick them up from school when their enrichment class is over. It’s a fun way to give them a little bit of a longer school day.  
How do I apply for my child to attend enrichments? Links for the Enrichment Applications are below.  There are limited spots open in some classes, others are already full.  Please use the application for your child’s classroom for the 2022-2023 school year.  Payment in full is due at the time of registration.
