About Us

Yellow flower girlThe National Coalition for Educational and Cultural Programs, Inc. (NCECP) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization founded in 1991. Our mission is to improve the quality of care for all children and we strive to fulfill our mission by providing professional, accessible and affordable educational and cultural programs to those who help shape the lives of children — teachers, communities and, of course, families.

On this website, you will find detailed information about our offerings, such as the Distance
Education Program – a series of remote learning courses for early childhood professionals.

We also provide grants to educational and cultural programs that need help financing the great work they do in their communities. If you know of a young adult heading off to college with a focus on education, animal husbandry or environmental science, be sure to check out the information on our yearly scholarships.
