Highmark Walk in June 2018
NDNCC has participated in the annual Highmark Walk at Bellevue State Park for the past 2 years. We sent several teams to the walk and have raised nearly $7000 to support high quality Early Childhood Education for all children here at NDNCC. Look for information on the next walk to be held in early June 2018.

School year 2017-2018 underway at NDNCC
Our new school year began Sept. 25th, 2017. 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 25th full of energy and stories about their summers. The ECE children are enjoying music lessons once a week. Toddlers and our Preschool age classes enjoy Jump/N/Fun classes once a month, and 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.

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!!

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.
