Apply Online via Ravenna

  • To begin, create a Ravenna account—NCRC's application management software—to manage your student application.
  • Early Learning Program: Select grade N1 or N2 for children who will be at least 2 years old by Aug. 1 of their incoming year.

  • Preschool Program: Select grade PS for children who will be at least 3 years old by Aug. 1 of their incoming year.

  • Pre-Kindergarten Program: Select grade PK for children who will be at least 4 years old by Aug. 1 of their incoming year.

All applicants must be at least 2 years old by August 1 of their incoming year. For best consideration, families are encouraged to adhere to NCR's admissions deadlines. NCRC considers post-deadline applications as space allows.

Submit video footage.

Completed outside of the Ravenna platform, NCRC asks for footage to better acquaint our faculty with your child. Please submit two, 2-minute videos of your child engaged in shared play (with a sibling, grown up, or peer) taken at home, in a classroom setting, or with a playgroup, etc.

Submit Preschool Teacher Evaluation.

Should it be applicable, we ask you to assign the Preschool Teacher Evaluation to a program director or teacher.

Submit reports for any formal developmental support.

Where applicable, attach any reports, evaluation, or treatment plans from your child's caregiver. This information helps NCRC's determine how best to support each child. 

Application for Tuition Assistance Program

NCRC's Tuition Assistance Program application is available for families through the Clarity Application . Learn more about Tuition Assistance.

Schedule a 45-min. play session.

Children are gathered in small groups with similarly aged students so our teaching teams can observe your child in our school setting to beset determine placement within NCRC programs. Please note: one adult caregiver must remain with the child during the length of the play session
