North City Preschool is nestled near a lush grove of oak and eucalyptus trees. Our playground is a natural environment in which children are given the opportunity to explore and discover the outdoor world. Our learning center classrooms offer additional interactive activities and experiences promoting play-based learning.

We believe each child is a unique and special creation of God. Our goal is to encourage your child to grow in his or her relationship to God, self, and others through loving teachers in a nurturing, Christian environment.

The Department of Social Services (Community Care Licensing), the CDC, and our local health department have developed new Covid-19 guidelines and mandates for all schools.

North City Preschool has put in place preventative measures and protocols. They are as follows: 


Community Care Licensing has issued a face covering mandate for children 2 years and older, while indoors. Face coverings do not need to be worn outdoors.


Designated drop off and pick up areas for each classroom are outside. Parents and children do not need to wear face coverings at drop off or pick up. Sign-in sheets will be at the designated outside drop off and pick up areas. Parents and children are required to wear a face covering inside whether vaccinated or unvaccinated.

Children will be checked daily for overall health and well-being, upon arrival. If your child exhibits any of the following symptoms, please keep them home:

-Coughing or sneezing
-Runny nose    
-Shortness of breath 
-Vomiting or diarrhea in the past 24 hours
– Not acting themselves

 ** If your child comes to school with these symptoms, you will be asked to take him/her home.  If your child has a fever, he/she needs to be fever free for 24 hours, without medication, in order to return to school.

**Parents are asked to report any positive case of COVID-19 in their immediate family or any known contact and exposure to COVID-19 to the preschool office.**
