National Child Research Center - NCRC Preschool

National Child Research Center - NCRC Preschool Founded in 1928, NCRC is an independent preschool that believes the early years are the most important for giving children a sense of self, building their confidence, and transforming them into lifelong learners.
(31)

NCRC is an independent preschool located in Northwest Washington, DC. Many elements make up our model preschool, including a richly diverse community, an experienced, professional faculty, a play-based curriculum inspired by research, special music, motor, and library programs, inclusion of children with special needs, parent education, and a supportive and giving community. At NCRC these elements combine to create the "magic" of our preschool, a joyful place where teachers, children and families come together to play, imagine, learn, and grow. NCRC is accredited by the National Association for Education of Young Children (NAEYC).

Swinging into Spring!

After the "long cold lonely winter" that was 2020, it has been wonderful to see "the smiles returning to the faces" here at NCRC this spring.

Please enjoy a glimpse of the joyful days on Highland Place during this gorgeous time of the year.

Happy Spring and Happy Friday! 🌸🌞

NCRC students and teachers have been busy putting kindness into action! As part of NCRC Days — a celebration of inclusion, kindness, and community — each class brainstormed ways they can show kindness to NCRC or to the community outside. From kindness rocks to birdhouses, food drives and making new friends, each project honored our different perspectives and spread kindness along the way. Each project is documented and displayed on the front porch — make sure to stop by! 🌸

Family Work Day is about keeping NCRC beautiful by working together as a community. It is also about keeping the broader community beautiful and giving thanks to those we share this wonderful neighborhood with. Each year, the Explorer team and their helpers put together these goody bags to deliver to our neighbors on Family Work Day. We can't wait to share! 🌼
