NOW ENROLLING FOR 2020–2021! SPACES ARE FILLING UP!


Where Needham’s Little Rockets Soar to New Heights!
The NCE Early Childcare Program is committed to providing a safe, enriching environment for the children of the Faculty and Staff of Needham Public Schools, Town of Needham Employees and Needham Residents. We are dedicated to promoting a love of learning and a strong sense of community through our nurturing care and our developmentally appropriate curriculum and practices.

ENROLLMENT FOR 2020–2021 SCHOOL YEAR IS OPEN
Enrollment priority is extended to children of Needham Public Schools staff and faculty, SO ACT FAST! Enrollment opens up to the Needham community on May 1, 2020.

We are happy to announce that our program is expanding to include care for older children starting in the 2020–2021 school year! 

Our littlest Rockets are in the Star Room, where our Infants have safe places for the stage they are in at the moment. From tummy time, all the way up to walking, they are encouraged to stretch their muscles and their minds as they meet developmental milestones. In the Moon Room our Toddlers have opportunities to explore and learn with more teacher directed lessons while still having many child-directed learning opportunities. Our biggest Rockets will now be able to orbit our Planet Room. A more structured educational plan and greater independence come together to facilitate more in-depth learning opportunities. Of course, our entire galaxy revolves around our play-based curriculum, our positive communication, and positive behavior management techniques.  

The NCE Early Childcare Program’s launch pad is the bright and cozy classrooms in The Congregational Church of Needham, located at 1154 Great Plain Avenue, (across from the Needham Post Office). Your child will be transformed by the friendships, learning experiences and-the-out-of-this-world-fun that is our mission, at the Little Rockets.
