Educational Philosophy

We believe that children flourish in a warm, sensory-rich, child-focused setting.
CCC provides a variety of settings, both indoors and outdoors, where young children can play, explore, and learn. The atmosphere at CCC encourages both self-reliance and sharing, and our low child-to-teacher ratio provides ample opportunity for individual attention.

We believe that early childhood is a crucial time to develop a healthy sense of self-confidence.
CCC educators encourage children to meet and overcome developmentally suitable challenges. The self-confidence that these efforts produce is authentic and vital to developing enthusiasm for learning, independence, and meaningful social ties.

We believe that children are individuals and that differences are valuable.
Each child has a unique learning style and particular needs. CCC celebrates these differences and cultivates an environment that can address individual interests and developmental levels.

We believe that children learn more effectively when they direct much of their own play and work.
CCC provides a balance of child-initiated and teacher-directed activities that include opportunities for active and quiet play. CCC’s predictable routines and consistent supervision provide structure within which children are encouraged to pursue a range of activities and to explore.

We believe that your family is the main source of security and identification for your young child.
At CCC, we understand that your child’s well-being depends on our success in working with your family.
