Our Programs

 

Following our developmental philosophy, NBCC's age-appropriate programs include activities and materials that enhance a child's social, emotional, physical and intellectual development. 

School Readiness Program:

From the first day of enrollment at NBCC, each child, even the infants, are put on an age appropriate path to not only build confidence and social/emotional intelligence, but also to be prepared for success in elementary school and beyond. Our trained teachers, in partnership with the local school districts, design a learning and exploratory environment that increases phonological awareness, print and numeracy concepts, and letter and word knowledge. All children that graduate from NBCC have the proficiencies needed to enter kindergarten ready to learn.

Nutrition Education:

 

 

Started in 2004 in response to the growing childhood obesity epidemic, NBCC established the Garden of Eatin' nutrition education program that incorporates health and wellness into our daily activities through an integrated, environmental curriculum. Each of NBCC's six campuses have school gardens, where children spend time each week with a garden coordinator actively involved in the planting cycle from growing starters, to harvesting, and of course, tasting every step of the way!

 

Did You  Know?

 As a developmental program that receives public and private funding, NBCC follows standards set by the California Department of Education to determine class ratios, group sizes and curriculum development.  We also comply with Title 22 regulations of the California Community Care Licensing offices for each region. Our teaching staff reviews and assesses our environments utilizing the Early Childhood Environment Rating Scales. Also, twice a year we provide families developmental profiles of their child during parent conferences. These profiles track and review the development of children during their time at NBCC.


Sound Good?

If you are considering NBCC for your child, we encourage you to call us to set up an appointment and tour during the center's working hours. Parents with children already enrolled at NBCC may drop in, monitor or participate in classroom activities at any time.
