What Our Families are Saying


“Our family has loved and depended on NCFC since our oldest was there for morning preschool. NCFC has been more than a daycare or school for our children, its staff hold a special place in our hearts and our girls have been cared for and genuinely loved every day they’ve stepped inside its doors. The staff delight in caring for children. The directors go the extra mile on a daily basis and have created a program to be proud of. Beyond the staff, the center has bright and clean rooms, great food, and several playgrounds that encourage creativity and interaction with nature. We would recommend NCFC to anyone, they humbly serve families every day.”

-Sara & Tony


“I am so grateful that our family has been apart of the Nativity Community throughout Covid. I have appreciated the open communication and safe environment that the team has created for our son. Even more so, I appreciate the staff that has done so much during this time – making each day a positive experience for our son.”

– Jane

We are so grateful to have our two daughters at NCFC. There are so many caring adults they get to interact with everyday. Their teachers are passionate educators who inspire them to learn and grow. The girls love playing with their friends at school, doing science experiments, and going on field trips. I think the main characteristic of NCFC is love: the love our daughters receive from the incredible staff and the love the staff have for this work. Also, we always feel good walking out of NCFC after dropping our kids off. The staff greet us, welcome the kids, and I leave knowing that our girls are loved, nurtured, and safe. It has been a true blessing to be a part of the NCFC community.
