NDCA, located just outside Eugene, Oregon, offers a community environment with a Christian focus to get your little one set up for a successful academic future. Our preschool is a back-to-basics program teaching children vital skills. Children learn about letters, sounds, numbers, and develop character awareness.
Hands on activities are used as children learn to recognize letters, explore beginning letter sounds, understand number concepts, and develop character awareness. Children in all classes also participate in daily devotionals and have weekly Bible lessons. A strong commitment to both environmental awareness and active learning is reflected in all areas of the curriculum. A daily science and nature study is an essential part of this unique program.
In a small school, the pace of learning can be tailored to each student. As they are learning their letters, numbers, colors, and shapes teachers can take time to problem-solve, practice, and encourage. Preschoolers truly benefit from this personalized approach.
At NDCA, we believe in nourishing the whole person: body, mind and soul. Our preschool kids play a big part in the chapel and worship activities. Our Preschool uses the Highreach Integrated Learning System (HILS). Preschoolers never cease to amaze us with their simple and often precocious faith. Their participation in the worship of our community is always an edifying experience.
The whole earth is full of God’s glory, and we understand that He is the best teacher of all! Our school is called Nature Discovery Christian Academy for a reason: a closeness with God’s creation makes children happier, healthier, more curious and vigorous, and more reverent and attuned to God’s gifts. We encourage outside time, hiking, poking things, touching bugs, and other activities. Our clean air and country setting are perfect for exploring God’s creation.
