Being a busy single mom to a bouncing energetic baby boy it was important to me that he recieve the attention, pacience and care that he needed. At CCDC that's exactly what he got. My son being his happy little self still remembers his first 'school' with the Monkey's. He was happy there and so was I.

Best center in town and I would know, we have been through 4 others. My son is so happy here. He talks about all his teachers all the time and says how much he loves his teachers. I truly feel like the staff finally understand and accept my child for who he is. He has some behavioral challenges due to his Autism and they treat him no different then any other child and work with him to overcome his challenges.

The center has trained staff who operate with research based modern early childhood development techniques I have to say that I personnally am also so thankful for this old fashioned loving daycare.

My child has been here since his second birthday, he's in kindergarten now and still goes for after school care. I am just absolutely in love with CCDC and highly recomend them to anyone seeking childcare. My son has learned so much there, and I love that their curriculum is very play-based. The director is amazing, the owner is so kind, and the teachers are all incredibly caring and nurturing.

My kids love coming here! They do a lot of fun activities & really enjoy their outside play time. I appreciate knowing that my kids are safe & having fun. Each day I look forward to hearing about all of the things they learned that day. Whether it’s helping them learn their colors & ABCs, new fun songs, or more recently learning about bees & plants, the teachers are pretty great.
