About the Provider


Curriculum and Philosophy

Our philosophy at NVCCC is “Learning through Play”. Young children learn through their play. The focus of their learning is on the formation of concepts about themselves and their physical and social environment. Their learning is facilitated by multi-sensory experiences, play and language development. 

Through a play-based curriculum, children explore their environment, try out various roles, problem-solve, and test their ideas to discover relationships. They involve their senses as they touch, move, create and develop understanding about feelings. They become fascinated by the power of language as a tool for communication and understanding through interaction with adults and peers. They need guidance and encouragement from adults as they strive toward the development of autonomy and a positive sense of self.

 Various play activities and learning experiences are set up by teachers to provide opportunities for children to develop language skills, math and science concepts and large and small muscle coordination; to discover how things work; to learn about living things, about their community, to learn social and self help skills; and to enjoy music, art, and dramatic play activities.

 The schedule of each class is a balance of group and individual, active and quiet, indoor and outdoor, teacher-directed and self-directed activities.

 Parents are always welcome to participate in the on-going activities of the Center.
