At NCECE, we provide children a safe, warm, nurturing environment in which our children will grow socially, emotionally, cognitively, physically and spiritually. Our children are taught through play and structured activities. Children work and have fun, make discoveries, meet new challenges, and learn to make their own decisions. We encourage them to develop as independent individuals. Our educational approach is developmental, offering hands on activities and age-appropriate materials that encourage creativity and self-expression.
Our dedicated staff nurtures and guides each student to foster a lifelong enthusiasm for learning. We believe that parents play a valuable part in the process. Their cooperation and input in school, plus their support at home, are all a part of the success of our program. Together, we build a strong foundation for our children’s success.
