Creative Children’s Center is a unified family program that crosses over many years.
Beginning with the Play Pals, our two and three year old students explore the classroom with the support of a teacher and parent helpers. Early art and sensory activities enhance the child’s view of the world in which he or she lives.
Our Preschool and Pre-K programs increase the classroom time and learning experience. The teachers prepare a curriculum that focuses on skills in all the developmental areas: physical, social, emotional, and intellectual, helping children to establish a strong foundation for the future. In our multi-age classrooms, children work together as a team exploring a variety of learning areas: the message/writing center, sensory tables, painting, studio arts, dramatic play, construction/blocks, literacy, light tables, science and more. Like the old one room schoolhouse, children support each other’s learning while reaching individual milestones. In multi-age classrooms students are able to stay with the same teacher for two to three years. Parents may choose a two, three or five day program, increasing time as your child grows.
At CCC we design our K-3 elementary school especially for enthusiastic, older learners. Considering the National Association for the Education of the Young Child guidelines, the program promotes academic learning in fun and innovative ways. The class introduces children to new ideas with activities that are meaningful in their own lives. Activities include: field-trips, cooking, language and literature, science and environmental studies, math and technology, creative dance and theatre, and physical education.
Every spring CCC teachers hold conferences on each student progress. In the grade school program children share their portfolios and participate in the conference, promoting a sense of ownership with regards to their own education and future studies.
In the summer we have classes for older children along with our teen counselor in training program, (TCT).
