Early Learning Center

At Northside Catholic Academy (NCA), we believe that a stimulating, joyful, and nurturing environment gives your child the best start in school. Our Early Learning Center provides children ages three and four with a child-centered learning environment focused on play and hands-on activities. We aim to strengthen self-esteem and instill a love of learning by making sure your child feels happy, safe, comfortable and loved. Throughout the day, our teachers engage early learners in a variety of activities, including music, art, and Spanish, as well as an early reading and Every Day Math curriculum. These learning experiences help our youngest students develop the social, emotional, physical and academic skills needed for success in kindergarten and beyond.  

Our Early Learning Religion curriculum focuses on teaching our youngest students about kindness, respect and consideration using Gospel stories, simple prayers and fun activities. We welcome non-Catholic students and embrace the diversity in our school by sharing and talking about other traditions and beliefs.

NCA’s Early Learning Center is located at the Primary School Campus at 6216 N. Glenwood Ave. We offer flexible half-day and full-day options. All of our Early Learning classes have two teachers for a 10:1 ratio that provides the individual attention necessary to help your child thrive. Onsite extended care, after school enrichment programs and Wildcat Summer Camp are also available. Start your child’s path to great learning and discovery at Northside Catholic Academy’s Early Learning Center. Visit us at one of our Open Houses or Admissions Tours to learn more.
