There are many wonderful ways for parents to participate in the life of the NIST CCC. Parents may occasionally be asked to donate their time and talents to assist in the maintenance of the child care facility and in other ways such as serving on a committee, participating on field trips, etc. We encourage all parents to participate in some way to help maintain the high quality of the Center and its programs but know that participation is strictly voluntary, and does not alter or influence your child's placement in the CCC. This is your Center, too. Please make the most of it!
