Here's what our current teachers have to say about working at NCC:

Not only have I had the privilege of working in an environment that is supportive and encouraging for teachers, but I also have had the joy of having both my children attend NCC. The programs NCC provides are top-notch, my children LOVE coming to school and are constantly growing and learning. I love teaching at a school which values play-based education and is truly invested in their staff. This school is anything but stagnant and constantly wanting to improve, grow, and do more for its children and its staff. I LOVE working at NCC! - Ms. Stephany (Current Science Discovery Teacher)
