Our Approach

We are a learning center guided by Christian principles and providing the highest quality care for young children and their families. We believe that home and family are the principal influences in shaping the body, mind, and soul of a child in their formative years; therefore, our teachers and staff seek to work together with parents to provide a nurturing environment that will begin a lifelong love of learning.

Frequently Asked Questions

What's included with tuition?


Your monthly tuition includes the following: 2 daily snacks, lunch, diapers, wipes, enrichment programs, and general supplies. Please see Menu for more details.




How long is the waitlist?


Every fall we start a new school year, this means that the majority of enrollment will take place in September. Depending on when a family joins the waitlist they can be on it for one to one and a half years.




What are the child to teacher ratios?


Our overall school-wide child to staff ratio is less than 6:1, with individual classroom ratios varying through the day. We find it is important to have 3 teachers staffed in each classroom and have a lower teacher to child ratio for high quality care.

Licensing ratios for children under 30 months is 1:7, children 2 ½ - prekindergarten 1:10 and kindergarten – 5th grade 1:15.




What is the curriculum used in each classroom?


NQACC approach emphasizes curiosity, creativity, and hands-on learning through play- based curriculum and building relationships with families and children.




What are the staff requirements?


Our teachers serve as loving role models to the children, demonstrating positive relationships and instilling in the children a love of learning. They work to prepare the children with the necessary skills and abilities to better understand and appreciate the world in which we live and the people who share this world with us.

Qualifications and Training include but is not limited to:

30 hours of STARS training in the first 3 months of employment and at least 10 hours of training every year after

CPR/First Aid, Food Handlers Card, Blood borne Pathogen Training and Universal Precautions, Child Abuse and Neglect training, Center Orientation




How does Enrollment at NQACC work?


1. Join a tour via Leg Up. {ENROLL NOW BUTTON}

2. Place your child on the waiting list through Leg Up and pay a $100 non-refundable registration fee.

3. You will be contacted when a spot is available, a $500 nonrefundable deposit plus processing fee is required to confirm the spot on the roster. The deposit is applied to your first month tuition.

4. Enrollment packet and classroom information will be sent out closer to the start date.

5. A visitation day will be scheduled just prior to the start date. A parent orientation is scheduled within the first 2 weeks of the child’s start date.




How much time will my child spend outdoors?


Outdoor play is vital for young children, we spend a significant amount of time outside, weather permitting. Each classroom has a morning and afternoon gym/playground times. We venture off-campus for walks, in order to take advantage of the surrounding areas which allow opportunities to discover.

What Parents Think

"I have two children at NQACC and this place is amazing. The teachers and staff truly love the kids and make the school a warm, inviting, fun, encouraging and educational environment. I just can't say enough wonderful things about NQACC. Literally the only downside is having to wait until your child is one year of age for enrollment, if I could have my third baby there now I would. Get your name on the waiting list now...It's worth it!"
