Welcome new parents!
We offer options for full-time or part-time child care, kindergarten, before and after school care, and summer camp.
"Ms. B is a truly standout teacher because of her dedication to the kids. She networked with NIST labs to create the STEM Program and promoted children's interest in science. She introduced diversified cultures to kids by teaching them to sing in different languages, and posting multiple culture's celebration and holidays. She encouraged kids to have good reading habits and always provided opportunities to stretch their capabilities in math, music and social skills. Kid-parent projects were very fun. My husband, daughter and I had a chance to study the solar system and dinosaurs by crafting a model together. Her love is not only limited to the Kindergarten class. She interacted with the younger kids in a friendly manner to make your students feel such a harmonious and warm environment."

Our mission is to encourage and promote the total social, physical, emotional, and academic development of each child in a safe, nurturing and supportive learning environment. All NIST employees, NIST Associates and other federal government employees with children or grandchildren ages 6 weeks-5th grade (e.g. Summer Camp and Before/After School Care) are eligible to enroll their children in the Center.
The Center admits children of any race, color, national or ethnic origin. We believe that finances should not prevent you from placing your little pea in our care and scholarship assistance is available to qualifying families. CFC #32392 - Funds received through the CFC are used for our "scholarship" program that provides tuition assistance critical to insuring that the CCC is financially accessible to all of the NIST community.
