All the Children of the World Academy (ATC) is a Christian school dedicated to the social, emotional and academic growth of all students. We place importance on preparing a rich environment, which allows children to explore and make connections. 

Our preschool is taught in thematic units and incorporates the development of each child’s oral language, reading, writing, mathematics, science, health, social studies, and critical thinking skills

At ATC, children have daily specials in the curricular areas of music, fitness, and science enrichment.

Our preschool classes are each made up of 10 children and 1 teacher.   Our staff is carefully picked for their unique abilities and love of children. The energy and talent they bring to the classroom make a wonderful atmosphere at ATC

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.
