Welcome to Northshore Christian Academy Early Learning Center! We are so glad that your family is interested in our program.

Our goal is to provide your family with a Christian environment where your child will be nurtured and loved by teachers and staff. We provide an enriching program of social development, character quality training and practice, developmentally appropriate opportunities, academic readiness activities and Biblical training.
