Nurturing the Whole Child
To succeed, a child needs not only solid academic skills but also a positive sense of self and a feeling of community. NGCC Franklin makes every effort to create a caring, nurturing environment that supports healthy choices and the emotional well-being of every child.
At NGCC, we focus on growth and development of the “Whole Child.” Our preschool curriculum actively engages the following core concepts every day:

We work with you so that your child will develop a love of learning and build their self-esteem. We believe that children learn best through hands-on activities and our teachers provide your child with the materials, freedom, and support to learn at their own pace. Activities at our childcare center and daycare are developed from your child’s interests and abilities so that your they love every minute of learning.
