Welcome to the NIST Child Care Center! Whether you are a mom, dad or guardian, you want your child to have a loving, caring, wholesome environment in which to play and learn. We understand the need to provide quality child care at a reasonable price and are excited to offer this service to the NIST community. We offer options for full-time or part-time child care, kindergarten, before and after school care, Montgomery County Public School closings, and snow days where space available.
All NIST employees, NIST Associates and other federal government employees with children or grandchildren ages 6 weeks-5th grade (e.g. Summer Camp and Before/After School Care) are eligible to enroll their children in the Center. The Center admits children of any race, color, national or ethnic origin. We believe that finances should not prevent you from placing your little pea in our care and scholarship assistance is available to qualifying families.
Our mission is to encourage and promote the total social, physical, emotional, and academic development of each child in a safe, nurturing and supportive learning environment.
The NIST CCC announces expansion of pre-school services
With the expansion of the NIST Child Care Center into our new state-of-art facility, we are excited to announce expanded service to provide a greater number of excellent child care and pre-school opportunities for NIST staff and associates. As a consequence, we have immediate openings in our 3 year-old classrooms and are celebrating our expansion by offering a $500 tuition credit for any enrollment that occurs by the week of February 17, 2014. Our expansion has also led to the shortest waiting lists in years for all our age groups (6 weeks old to 5 years). To encourage NIST parents of all ages to join the NIST CCC community, we are also waiving the application fee for new child care applications received by February 17,2014. Applications and information are available at www.nist.gov/ccc and inquiries can be made at firstname.lastname@example.org or by callingx2152.
Effective Jan 1, 2013, the waitlist policy for the NIST CCC has changed. See the new waitlist policy.
An updated Parent Handbook has been posted. Please check the handbook for new information on emergency plans and new building operating policies and procedures.
