Lots of things are happening at NDNCC! Our Pre-School and Pre-Kindergarten classes have been enjoying their Chinese Culture lessons with Ms. Lu from the Confucius Institute, a partnership with the University of Delaware. All of the ECE children are also participating in music lessons with Ms. Emma on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons, another partnership program with UD Community Music School. Preschool and Pre-K are also enjoying Ballet lessons from Mid-Atlantic Ballet on Tuesday mornings. Read Aloud Delaware volunteers spend several hours per week reading to our children. Look for family-centered activities offered in your childís classroom throughout the year. Also, keep an eye out for upcoming parent training classes that will be presented to enhance your childís early years in life.

Child TSG Assessments/Ages & Stages Screening (ASQ)/ Parent Conferences
Our ECE Teachers complete fall, winter, and spring assessments, on children enrolled in the program, using the Teaching Strategies Gold assessment tool. Ages and Stages Questionnaires (ASQ-3) are also used in the ECE program. Families complete an ASQ-3 for their child and together, ECE teacherís and families review the results to determine if children are developing at an age appropriate level. Teacherís conference with families, reviewing the children's progress towards research-based developmental benchmarks and goals, at least twice per school year.

Thank you volunteers!
NDNCC would like to thank the many Days of Caring employees who volunteer at our center. They help 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.
