National Presbyterian Child Care Center (NPCCC) is dedicated to providing early childhood education in a nurturing and stimulating environment for children ages 6 weeks to 3 years old.

A loving and inclusive community, NPCCC strives to facilitate the social, cognitive and physical development of young children. We work hard to ensure that each child receives the individual attention they need to thrive.

National Presbyterian Child Care Center is located at the corner of Nebraska Avenue and Van Ness Street, NW, near the Tenleytown Metro Station and on the campus shared by The National Presbyterian Church and National Presbyterian School.

Hours of Operation

7:30 am - 6 pm

NPCCC is open Monday - Friday, year-round with the exception of many Federal holidays, as well as National Presbyterian School holidays and staff professional development days.
