NCA Matagalpa’s preschool program incorporates hands-on learning experience and age appropriate activities. The instructional program is structured to include all the MINED requirements but also respects developmentally appropriate strategies. The students learn about new concepts in circle time, practice and apply them in center time and have the opportunity to demonstrate their learning individually with their teacher each day. Students are evaluated in areas of social-emotional and language development, literacy skills, math and logic concepts, developmental skills and behavioral progress. In addition to their core classes, preschool students have daily English class, bi-weekly physical education, and weekly classes in Art, Music and library.

We currently have the third level or K5 - Kindergarten (for students who turn 5 by February 28).
