"NCRC is a magical place where every single child has the opportunity to be their very best, to explore, to try, to fail, to get back up and to be loved unconditionally and totally."



The Admissions Committee considers numerous factors involved in class placement to ensure a balanced classroom. Class placements focus on a child's developmental needs and we strive to create classes that reflect the NCRC community. The Admissions Committee will do their best to work with each family's needs, while ensuring a balanced classroom for the children within the applicant pool.
