Nurturing Growth through Playful Learning and Love.

Nurturing Growth through Playful Learning and Love.

For nearly 30 years, Northampton Christian Preschool provides families with a play-based, age-appropriate preschool that is centered on the whole child: physically, intellectually, emotionally, socially, and spiritually.





Northampton Christian Preschool provides a developmentally appropriate program that contributes to a child’s holistic growth. Our program focuses on nurturing a child’s natural curiosity, creativity, and imagination, fostering a love for learning from an early age. By tailoring activities and lessons to match a child’s cognitive, emotional, and physical capabilities, our program creates a supportive learning environment, promoting confidence and self-esteem.

Play-based Learning

We believe play is important for all ages, especially preschoolers! By exploring their surroundings and interacting with various toys and materials, preschoolers grow their problem-solving skills, creativity, and critical thinking abilities. Play also acts as a natural vehicle for language development, as children communicate, negotiate, and express themselves while engaging in imaginative play scenarios. Play-based learning also encourages socialization, enabling preschoolers to develop empathy, cooperation, and conflict resolution skills as they interact with their peers.

Christian Values

Rooted in our Christian faith, our students learn character development and values such as kindness, compassion, and empathy. Children are taught to respect others and embrace diversity, fostering a sense of community and inclusivity. The integration of Biblical teachings and stories helps instill a strong moral compass and a foundation of faith, providing children with a sense of purpose and meaning.

Family Feedback

“Northampton Christian Preschool was everything we could have ever hoped it would be for our son – from friendships to learning to knowing that he was safe and cared for. I can’t say enough wonderful things about the staff. Every teacher and administrator we came into contact with was beyond compare. They treat their students with such kindness, support, and grace and their communication with the parents was always top notch. They provide an atmosphere of patience and wonder for the students to explore and learn. My son was so excited to go to school everyday and while they prepared him well for his next journey into kindergarten, we will forever miss Northampton Christian Preschool!”

“We could not have been happier with the experience our grandson had at Northampton Christian Preschool for two years!  Our grandson was surrounded with love, patience, and compassion every single day he was there.  The learning that took place was fun, meaningful, and taught him life-long lessons on how to be a kind and caring friend.  You can tell from the start that the staff is there because they love what they do and they all took the time to know each child personally.  Safety is a top priority and we loved the way they allowed us to share in the children’s daily experiences through their Facebook page.  We highly recommend NCP to anyone looking for a loving and nurturing preschool experience!”
