Who We Are

Who We Are


Registration is currently open for all programs until all spaces are filled.

For 30+ years, NIA has consistently provided children and youth with well-rounded educational programs.  We place an emphasis on character development through a structured environment. We believe that exposing our youth to these various activities helps them to develop into well-rounded individuals. We believe in assisting them in developing their gifts and talents at an early age. We are proud to say that many NIA students have gone on to Ivy League colleges, obtaining degrees and others are business owners, arts professionals or leaders in their communities.

Yes, it is vitally important to ensure that children receive the highest quality for consistent care and education. NIA is a keystone stars facility and is rapidly moving towards Star Level 3. We are also a member of the National Association of Child Care Professionals.
