CCCC Programs

OUR MISSION AND PHILOSOPHY

Community Child Care Center’s mission statement is to provide an environment “where every child feels love and success every day. “  We support our mission by providing a learning environment that focuses on acceptance and encouragement of children.We teach children to value themselves and others by embracing their differences. At CCCC the children will experience growth in cognitive and physical development, but just as importantly, they will develop the ability to succeed socially and emotionally. Our goal is to prepare children for school, but also to help them develop the ability to be successful friends, family members, employees and citizens. We believe in the importance of building strong relationships with children and families in order to facilitate learning.  We work as partners with parents, who are their child’s first and most important teachers.  It is our job to support our parents and give them the tools they need to be successful as well.

OUR CURRICULUM

Our classroom programming is based on the Creative Curriculum, a developmentally appropriate curriculum that research has shown to be effective in providing school readiness.  The curriculum starts with observation of children and setting learning goals for each child.  We use the Creative Curriculum Gold© Assessment Tool to define where the child is at in 6 basic areas:

  • Social Emotional Development
  • Physical Development
  • Language Development
  • Cognitive Development
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics

communityWe then write our lesson plan using the areas of the classroom environment to provide learning activities to help children meet their individual needs.  Through the use of different topics of study, we provide children with the knowledge of the world around them while giving them the opportunity to practice the skills they need to be successful in school and in life.  The children learn these skills with the help of caring adults guiding their development.
