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.


NCRC’s highly skilled faculty uses research-based best practices to lead children in a play-based curriculum, creating a uniquely enriching and nurturing environment for young children and their families. As a model for early childhood education, NCRC promotes and respects diversity and inclusion in a climate that focuses on the whole child as it prepares children to be independent members of our larger community.
