NCC Children's Centers are located on the college's Bethlehem and Monroe campuses and accept children 6 weeks to kindergarten entry. Both centers are staffed by qualified teachers employed by the college. The centers offer full and part time care and education on a semester or full year basis to children of NCC students, staff and the community. Our arts-based emergent curriculum is implemented in the centers' universally designed for learning classrooms (UDL).
We nurture and educate each child, regardless of race, gender, ability, ethnicity, socio-economic standing, or religion. We believe that every child who enters our center is unique and competent and that the strong foundation laid here will support and create eager, lifelong learners.
Northampton's Children's Centers are licensed by the Department of Human Services (DHS) and are rated four-star facilities through the state of Pennsylvania's Keystone STARS program and also are accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).
