Morning Preschool Program
Our year-round morning preschool program runs Monday through Friday, from 9:00 am to 12:30 pm. We have two classes— the Front Yard class and the Back Yard class,each accommodating 25 children and supervised by a teacher-director. With the active involvement of caregivers, the teacher-directors design and implement a program tailored to the unique needs of each child . CCC’s morning program maintains a ratio no greater than one adult to five children.
Our programs offer a well-rounded mix of active and quiet play, as well as both large and small group activities. For instance, your child might start the day with an engaging painting project or lend a hand preparing a delicious snack. Afterward, they can opt for climbing on play structures, exploring our dress-up closet, making music, dancing with peers, or simply settling down on a comfy couch with a favorite book. At CCC, we firmly believe that children learn and grow through play. We aim to cultivate competence and self-confidence in a nurturing and stimulating environment where every child feels content and secure.
Early Morning/Afternoon Program
CCC also offers early morning and afternoon programs, led by a teacher-director. Children must be enrolled in the morning program to be eligible to participate in early morning and afternoon care. These programs do not require caregiver 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 our morning program, the afternoon program provides children with opportunities to engage in structured activities, as well as unstructured, self-directed play. They can choose from a variety of projects, including art, science and gardening. A favorite among our young participants is our daily tea time, which takes place towards the end of the afternoon program.
Both the early morning and afternoon programs operate during the summer months based on demand.
