Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"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."
