NDNCC News & Events

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

New school year begins at NDNCC
Our new school year began Sept. 29th, 2016. The ECE children were so excited to move up to their new classrooms. They had been preparing for several weeks by visiting the classrooms and getting to know the teachers. The School-Age students returned on the 29th full of energy and stories about their new school years. Coming up, the ECE children will participate in music lessons once a week, a partnership program with UD Community Music School. Toddlers, Preschool and PreK classes will enjoy Jump/N/Fun classes once a month, and Read Aloud Delaware volunteers will 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.

Summer Camp a hit!
Summer Camp at NDNCC was a great place to be. Campers were busy with many outdoor activities, arts & craft projects, swimming, and team games. Field trips to the Franklin Institute, Hershey Park, Six Flags, Dutch Wonderland, the Renaissance Fair,Longwood Gardens, Midway Raceway and Water Park, and Rehoboth Beach/Cape Henlopen added great adventures to our themed weekly programming. Camp wrapped up with a Fun Fair of carnival type games and an inflatable obstacle course. We look forward to seeing all the campers at our American Camp Assoc. accredited camp again next summer!!

Successful Highmark Walk on June 4th!
NDNCC participated in the annual Highmark Walk at Bellevue State Park. We sent several teams to the walk and raised nearly $4000 to support high quality Early Childhood Education for all children here at NDNCC.

Annual Meeting Recap
NDNCC's Annual Meeting was held Thursday evening February 25th. The event included a dinner prepared by our own wonderful kitchen staff. A short recap of 2015 accomplishments was provided, followed by employee service awards including 2 25 year awards! The families also enjoyed a performance by Jungle John, and the opportunity to see our children's creativity through the art displayed throughout the building!

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.
