Founded in 1928, the National Child Research Center provides a collaborative approach to preschool education in an environment that nurtures the whole child, fosters partnerships with families, and is committed to the inclusion of children with special needs. A highly trained, multi-disciplinary faculty employs developmentally appropriate practices, supported by ongoing professional development and sound research. Essential to its role as a model of early childhood education is the creation of a diverse, respectful community. Both within and beyond the school community, NCRC seeks opportunities to advocate for all children and their families.
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.
