Nature Discovery Christian School – Academic Programs
Academic Programs at NDCS
The pre-kindergarten program is a back-to-basics program that teaches young children vital skills. 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 (preschool through high school) 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.
Pre-Kindergarten class times are 8:30 am until 12:30 pm. Extended care, including science camps are available.
Before-School Care is offered from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. every day, free of charge.
This nature focused, integrated kindergarten curriculum is designed to teach all of the basics – reading, math, science, and social studies. The uniqueness of this program is its strong commitment to both environmental education and active learning. Small class size and individualized attention give children the freedom to work at their maximum potential and get the most out of the kindergarten experience.
The kindergarten day is from 8:30 am until 2:30 pm. After school science camp and after school care is also offered.
The Multi-leveled classrooms are afforded the unique opportunity for children to work at their own pace, not according to any grade’s curriculum. Students are often working far ahead of their peers in other schools. The class size and individualized attention given by the experienced, certified teachers promote higher student success.
All elementary grades cover basic curriculum; reading, spelling, math, science, and social studies. And include art, music, physical education and bible study. Students have access to a computer lab and library. Before-School Care is offered from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. every day, free of charge.

Nature Discovery School is the best! We couldn't be happier with our child's continued success there. She is challenged by loving, caring, experienced teachers, and there's nothing better than seeing a child who's excited about school and working up to their full potential. Teachers, keep up the good work! --NDCS Parent
My children have been attending Nature Discovery School for six years - started in preschool and now in 4th grade. Never intended to stay this long but was so pleased with their preschool program, I continued on through kindergarten.
