About

We have been offering quality care since 1967. Finding the right preschool for your child is one of the most important foundations for their educational career. Not only will they lay their first academic cornerstones, but valuable social and motor skills. These skills are first developed in preparation for success in kindergarten and onto their college years. As your child takes these first steps in schooling, it is important to find a preschool that will not only nurture them academically, but spiritually as well. At Northside Academy for Early Learning, we believe that by partnering with you, the parents, we can give each and every one of our students a solid foundation to excel throughout their schooling and their lives. At the Academy for Early Learning, our preschool begins at 6 weeks of age and continues until the Kindergarten transition time; covering the most important years of learning in  your child’s life.

We realize the great responsibility that is ours in providing quality care, academic instruction, and instilling Christian character by teaching it and living it; encouraging each student to reach his or her full potential physically, socially, academically and spiritually. We seek to help parents train the children in the way of the Lord, and it is of vital importance that we work together in this pursuit. We believe that the development of your child into a mature Christian young person will, in part, be determined by the examples we set and the challenges we place before them
