Welcome to CCC
Children’s Community Center is a parent participation, cooperative preschool — the oldest cooperative preschool west of the Mississippi. We have a year-round, play-based, developmental program, directed and managed by parents in cooperation with a professional teaching staff. Since 1927, successive generations of parents have contributed their time, energy and love to maintain this healthy place for children to learn and grow.
The following video provides a great overview of CCC – an explanation of what we mean by play-based education, what parent participation means, some information about afternoon programs, and more.
Our primary program runs from 9:00 am-12:30 pm Monday through Friday. We offer extended care from 8:00-9:00 am and 12:30-5:30 pm. Families participate in their child’s classroom one morning a week.
