Morning Preschool Program
Our year-around morning preschool program is in session Monday through Friday, from 9:00 am to 12:30 pm. Each class (there are two — the Front Yard class and the Back Yard class) consists of 26 children and is supervised by a teacher-director. With the assistance of parents, the teacher-director plans and implements a program to meet the individual needs of the children. CCC maintains a ratio no greater than one adult to five children.
The program provides a balance between active and quiet play, as well as large and small group activities. Your child could begin the morning with a painting project, or help to cook up something good for snack time. Next, she might choose to do some climbing on the play structures or try some dress-up. Then she could make music and dance with other children or curl up on a cozy couch with a favorite book. At CCC, we believe that children learn and grow through play. We encourage competence and self-confidence by providing a nurturing and stimulating atmosphere where each child can feel happy and comfortable.
Early Morning/Afternoon Program
CCC also offers early morning and afternoon programs, led by a teacher-director. These programs do not involve parent participation. Our early morning program is available from 8:00 am to 9:00 am, and our afternoon program is from 12:30 pm to 5:30 pm.
Similar to the morning program, the afternoon program gives children the opportunity to participate in organized activities, as well as to play in a relaxed, self-directed way. They can choose from projects such as art, science, and gardening. And the kids love tea-time, a daily ritual that takes place towards the end of the afternoon program.
Both the early morning and afternoon programs operate during the summer months based on demand.
