New for 2021-2022: Kindergarten
In addition to our regular Pre-K classes, we are excited to offer an accredited Kindergarten class, for one year only, for the 2021-2022 school year. This class will be offered given sufficient enrollment only. The Kindergarten class was created based on parent feedback. We are privileged to be able to give our families this opportunity to remain at NMP while also providing a Christian based preschool education.
The Kindergarten class will be led by a fully certified teacher and will include a developmentally appropriate curriculum based on Georgia Kindergarten Standards. Building on the reading readiness skills learned in Pre-K, the K curriculum will focus on literacy and number sense, while including weekly specials in Art, Music, Movement, and Library. Elements of STEAM learning and Social Studies will be woven into the children’s school experience. Class hours will be 9:00-1:30 Monday through Thursday, and 9:00-12:30 Friday.
This class is specifically for children who will be entering a first grade curriculum in 2022-2023. We are committed to meet the expectations of our preschool families and Atlanta Public Schools.
Enrollment preference will be considered, in rank order, for:
- Current NMP Pre-K students (only those planning to enter 1st grade the following year)
- Northside Church members
- Community students
A tuition deposit of $500 will be required upon acceptance. This deposit will be refunded if enrollment numbers do not warrant opening this class or if a child is accepted to a local private school and NMP is notified by April 16.
