As the oldest continuously operating preschool in the District of Columbia, we are proud to continue to provide children with an experience that lasts a lifetime.
National Child Research Center nurtures the whole child—socially, emotionally, and intellectually—toward a lifelong love of learning. Informed by current research and continuing education, NCRC's exceptional faculty guide each student's unique development through a play-based, child-centered curriculum in a diverse, family-focused community, with a commitment to the inclusion of children who benefit from additional supports and adaptations.
At the heart of NCRC Preschool, we value collaboration, learning from one another, and sharing ideas, traditions, and talents in a diverse and inclusive community. Children explore, create, and experience the wonder of play to discover their view of the world around them.
