Welcome to the webpage for Neah-Kah-Nie Preschool.  We are located on the same property as the District Office, on 3rd Street in Rockaway Beach.  We are able to serve up to 40 students, between our morning and afternoon sessions of preschool.   We are currently staffed with one licensed teacher and one instructional assistant in each of our two sessions of preschool.  This enables us to maintain a teacher to student ratio of no more than 1:10.  Our district music teacher, Michael Simpson, provides weekly music lessons to our preschool classes.

The learning space at Neah-Kah-Nie Preschool is warm, spacious, and engaging.  We have a well-equipped classroom that offers our students opportunities to explore, play and develop important social, cognitive, and physical skills.  We also have a fenced playground, with developmentally appropriate equipment for young children to enable outdoor play.  For those days when outdoor recreation is not an option, we have tricycles and scooters that can be ridden in the breezeway, as well as an indoor sensory gym.  This brightly-colored space provides students with the opportunity to develop motor skills, meet sensory needs, and be physically active, even when it is too wet to go outside.

The morning preschool session runs from 8:15 am to 11:15 am, Monday through Friday.  Transportation is provided to students living in the Nehalem Elementary attendance zone for the morning session.

The afternoon preschool session runs from 11:15 am to 2:15 pm, Monday through Friday.  Transportation is provided to students living in the Garibaldi Grade School attendance zone for the afternoon session.

Neah-Kah-Nie Preschool provides a nurturing and fun environment for our littlest learners to play and learn.  To enroll or obtain more information about our program, you can reach me at 503-355-3508 or angied@nknsd.org.
