North Bay Children's Center

North Bay Children's Center provides comprehensive high-quality child care and early education programs fueled by our vision of excellence and a spirit of innovation.  Our mission is to assure optimal development for every child we serve through:

  • Culturally rich programs that prepare children from diverse backgrounds to succeed socially, emotionally and academically
  • Our Garden of Eatin' program that weaves a culture of health and wellness throughout the organization and serves as a model for other communities to emulate
  • Strong family, school, and community partnerships that support a shared belief in each child's ability to succeed

 "North Bay Children’s Center was founded on the belief that every child should be provided equal access to quality care and early education, which paves the way for academic success for years to come.  Thanks to our wonderful staff, committed Board of Directors and Advisory Board members, I’m proud to say that NBCC not only meets this goal for each year but we continue to create new, innovative children’s programs
