NDNCC News & Events

This page includes news, coming events, community information and other NDNCC items of interest to residents of the Newark, Delaware area.


Summer Camp accredited, and roaring along!
Summer Camp at NDNCC is a great place to be. The campers are busy with many outdoor activities, arts & craft projects, swimming, team games, and field trips to the Adventure Aquarium, Hershey Park, Six Flags, Dutch Wonderland, the Renaissance Fair, and Rehoboth Beach/Cape Henlopen. Our camp program was recently accredited by the American Camp Association. Congratulations to our School Age/Camp staff for this accomplishment.

Annual Meeting Recap
NDNCC's Annual Meeting was held Thursday evening February 28th. The event included a dinner prepared by our own wonderful kitchen staff. A short recap of 2013 accomplishments was provided, followed by employee service awards including a 20 year award! The families also enjoyed a performance by Clem Bowen, and the opportunity to see our children's creativity through the art displayed throughout the building!

Classroom Events at NDNCC
Lots of things happening at NDNCC! Our Pre-School and Pre-Kindergarten classes have been enjoying their Chinese Culture lessons with Ms. Tina from the Confucius Institute, a partnership with the University of Delaware, and the older ECE children enjoyed a Soccer Shots training. Read Aloud Delaware volunteers spend several hours per week reading to our children. The ECE children are also participating in two other partnership programs with UD, the KidFit program, and the Community Music School music lessons. Family-centered activities offered include Family Game Nights and Movie Nights, and parent training classes have also been presented.

Spring Child Assessments/Parent Conferences
Our ECE staff have completed the spring child assessments using the Teaching Strategies Gold assessment tool. They then held conferences with families, reviewing the children's progress towards research-based developmental benchmarks.

Capital Improvements Completed!
After raising funds from many Foundation, Corporate and Individual community partners, NDNCC has been able to replace its aged HVAC system, and develop a new playground for the school age children! We express gratitude on behalf of our families for these investments in the children's futures.

Thank you volunteers!
NDNCC would like to thank the many Days of Caring employees who recently volunteered at our center. They helped us with the many tasks involved in a center of our size, including landscaping, painting and assembling furniture. These volunteer hours save us thousands of dollars that we can then redirect into the programming for our children! If your workplace would be interested in having a volunteer day at our center, please contact our Exec. Director, John Fisher-Klein at 731-4925.

Soup Sharing held November 27th
Family members were invited to join their children for some tasty, homemade soup in the classrooms. The soup was actually put together from donations from NDNCC families and each classroom has a hand in it' s preparation. The children enjoy seeing the colorful array of vegetables, beans and pasta that come together to make the soup.
