NCRC's Value Proposition

Since 1928, NCRC has championed the value of a program dedicated solely to early childhood. Guided by sound research in child development, the NCRC play-based curriculum focuses on the cognitive and developmental needs of children ages two to five. We use play to support development in all domains and to maximize the potential of our young learners. 

NCRC intentionally cultivates a learning environment that reflects a diversity of backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences. We recognize the investment of time and financial resources that an NCRC education requires of families and it’s important to us that our community include members from all socioeconomic backgrounds.  Please read below to find out more about our Tuition Assistance Program.

We encourage any family who may benefit from any level of tuition assistance to apply for our Tuition Assistance Program. Support for tuition is based on the family's financial reports, and depends on the overall availability of Tuition Assistance Program funds. NCRC's goal is to make NCRC available to as many families as we can with the resources available to us. 

NCRC's Tuition Assistance Program

NCRC provides a need-based Tuition Assistance Program. We encourage any family who may benefit from ANY LEVEL of tuition assistance to consider applying. Any Tuition Assistance award is based on the family's financial reports coupled with the overall availability of NCRC’s Tuition Assistance Program funds. NCRC's goal is to optimally support all qualifying families with the fund resources available.
