2 Teachers In Every Classroom To Personalize Their Learning
There are 2 highly trained and experienced teachers in your child’s classroom, plus dedicated aides where necessary, so your little one enjoys a customized learning plan and lots of one-on-one attention to help them meet all their milestones.
Frog Street© Curriculum Prepares Your Child For The School Years
Play-based and research-backed, the trusted Frog Street© curriculum uses songs, stories, hands-on activities, and milestone trackers to ensure your little one learns their letters, sounds, numbers, colors, shapes, and more. They work at their own pace to master foundational concepts.
Enrichments Like Spanish & Music Boost Communication & Creativity
Your preschooler’s language and self-expression skills take off when they engage in enrichments like Spanish, art, music, and dance. They unlock their creativity, expand their vocabulary, and discover new interests while broadening their communication and cultural horizons.
Active Discovery & Dramatic Play Encourage Imagination
Your child has time and space to explore the activities that interest them the most. They can build with blocks, dress up and play pretend, invent games with their friends, and use their creativity to be anything they can imagine.
Conscious Discipline® Supports Their Social-Emotional Growth
The social-emotional component of their curriculum, Conscious Discipline® is a gentle philosophy that models empathy, respect, appropriate behaviors, and healthy emotional regulation. Your child learns to express and manage their feelings and becomes a confident self-advocate and well-mannered classroom citizen.
Outdoor Adventures Foster Healthy Physical Development
Your preschooler enjoys daily playtime on an age-appropriate playground where they run, jump, and climb their way to stronger muscles and gross motor skills. They connect with nature in the garden and through guided activities in the great outdoors.
Breakfast & Snacks Included For A Morning & Afternoon Boost
Your child starts the day with a healthy, delicious breakfast, has a tasty afternoon snack to keep up their energy, and the food provided is always allergy-conscious. You pack a lunch, so you know their midday meal is crafted to their preferences too.
Parent Communication That Supports Potty Training & More
Your child’s teacher communicates with you about critical developmental milestones like potty training. If your little one needs speech or behavioral therapy, they receive services on-site so you and their teachers can best support their continuing growth.
Electrostatic Spray & Air Purifiers To Protect Your Child’s Health
The staff’s tireless daily cleaning, electrostatic disinfecting sprayers, and air purification maintain a fresh, sanitized environment. Bi-weekly deep-cleans by a commercial crew ensure that your little one’s classroom and common areas stay spotless and germ-free.
Cameras, Tall Fences, & Vigilant Teachers Keep Them Safe & Sound
Never worry about your little one’s safety and security because they spend their days behind restricted access entrances and tall, sturdy playground fences. CPR-certified teachers and CCTV cameras keep watch over all their activities.

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.
