The National Child Research Center (NCRC), is an independent preschool serving Washington area families since 1928. We believe that the early years are the most important for giving children a sense of self, building their confidence, and transforming them into lifelong learners. 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.
Forty-two faculty and staff members partner with NCRC families to support the 173 children attending the school. Benefits at the school are competitive.
