Child Care Center

The NIST CCC operating hours are from 6:45 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.  

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 for children aged 6 weeks to 5th grade.  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.

All NIST employees, NIST Associates and other federal government employees with children or grandchildren ages (e.g. Summer Camp and Before/After School Care) are eligible to enroll their children in the Center. 

The Center is an equal opportunity provider. We believe that finances should not prevent you from placing your little pea in our care and scholarship assistance is available to qualifying families. 

Welcome to the
NIST Child Care Center!
