NCNS offers play-based learning programs for children ages 15 months to 5 years in addition to various optional enrichment programs. The programs at NCNS have a teacher to student ratio of 1 to 7, with our 2’s and Early 3’s classes having a lower ratio of 1 to 5 and 1 to 6 respectively. We feel these are appropriate ratios for the age groups represented in each class. DCFS regulation requires a teacher to student ratio that does not exceed 1 to 10.

Each class (except Parent & Tot) has thirty minutes weekly of music and movement with our music specialist. Along with singing songs, the children will have a chance to play various instruments, learn about different musical styles, play to the rhythm and beat as well as sing in various languages.
