Enrichment Areas & Special Classes

Chapel - ATC students meet twice a month in the sanctuary for a short chapel service designed to inspire and build upon their faith in God. Chapel is led by the pastoral staff of Northside Fellowship Church.


Special Events - Our students participate in a variety of events through the year including our Fall Showcase, Spring Show, Homestead Day and Outside Fun Day.


Visual Art - Our art program is about the process. We explore the fundamentals of shape, color, pattern, texture, design and composition. ATC students are provided with opportunities to work with a variety of materials to create their own unique pieces.


Music - Each week students have opportunities to actively experience music using a variety of techniques and instruments. Music is often played during the day, as research suggests this helps the brain to respond in mathematical ways.


Science Exploration - Students will discover how science plays a part in their world. Some favorite topics include: incline planes, pulleys and levers, friction, life cycles, gravity, force and motion and healthy habits.


Fitness - This enrichment class is a great precursor to any type of athletic involvement and an excellent way to work on gross motor skills. It is a fun mix of music, stretching, tumbling, games, and creative expression.

Values

1. Children - As our name suggests, we believe that all children of the world are valuable, precious and uniquely created by God. For this reason, we work with children in a way that uplifts and encourages them.


2. Early Childhood - We believe early childhood is a distinct and critical stage of development for all children. Therefore, we embrace this journey of early childhood by intentionally crafting our classroom setup and activities to address the needs of the whole child.


3. Integrated Faith - We are a Christian school that weaves faith into the classroom and curriculum. Our routines, transitions, snack times and more, support the emergence of teachable faith moments. We welcome families who are not affiliated with any church.


4. Cultural Depth - The ability to cherish our own cultural roots, as well as learn about the cultures of those around us, is a very important skill in our world. At ATC, we make learning about cultures, languages and customs an ongoing occurrence.


5. Parents and Family - We recognize the importance of parents and family in the development of a child. We seek to support and encourage parents in their role and offer enriching opportunities for families.


6. Accessibility of Staff - We embrace our role in reflecting God’s delight in children through quality interactions that are personal, individualized, and reflect our interest and sensitivity to each child.

Testimonials


"ATC is truly a phenomenal place! We are beyond blessed to have both our children complete preschool and Kindergarten here. The school provides a positive, loving atmosphere where community, family and FUN are emphasized!  In Kindergarten, the engaging curriculum is top- notch! It balances faith, academics and lots of fun, “hands on” education. We met so many special families. My children were beyond prepared for first grade and well ahead of expectations in vital subjects (reading, math and writing).

Thanks for a wonderful experience ATC!"


-Lindsay M. (Mom of 3)


"If you are considering ATC for your child, look no further! Both of our children attended the kindergarten program at ATC. We were beyond impressed with both of their experiences. The staff and teachers are caring, creative, engaging, supportive, and they really really love their students. We even survived the end of the school year 2020 craziness, and our teacher consistently went above and beyond for her kids. It was amazing how she adapted and continued to engage the kids from home under the circumstances. We’ve loved all the special activities that happen throughout the school year like Fall Showcase, Spring Show, Homestead Day, field trips, special cooking days, and so many fun themed days in the classroom. We also really enjoyed the after school programs offered for soccer, cheerleading, art, and STEAM. Our children both received a wonderful and loving education in the small, family like environment at ATC. We would stay at ATC forever if we could!"  

- Melissa A.


"Our experience at ATC has been amazing and frankly, we wish they offered classes through 5th grade.  My son and daughter both loved every teacher they had.  Between both of my children we were in the 3/4's class, 4/5's class, 5+ class and both attended M-Th Kindergarten.  In our final year at ATC, virtual learning happened and the Kindergarten teachers could not have handled it better!  Between online class meetings (both small groups and whole class), one - on - one calls, videos for learning new lessons and packets for experiments, art work, reading levels and more, the teachers made the most possible of virtual learning.  The family of friends we made at ATC will last a lifetime!  This is a school you will love!"
