CLC is a traditional play-based preschool. We understand that experiences in the first 5 years become the building blocks for school readiness – both from a skills perspective, as well as positive relationships with adults and peers.
We follow school-year schedule, beginning the Monday following Labor Day and ending the Thursday before Memorial Day. – Download calendar here (link)
We offer 11 weeks of Summer Play Days – a theme-based camp experience for children 18 months through entering Kindergarten.
CLC is accredited through the National Accreditation Commission.
We believe that children learn best through developmentally appropriate activities and play. Our teachers partner with parents to set goals and provide an excellent preschool experience for their children. During the preschool years, we think about a child’s brain development as it relates to four different domains – social/emotional, physical, language, and cognitive development.
Our teachers are trained to use a resource from Teaching Strategies® called “Objectives for Development & Learning: Birth Through Kindergarten.” This resource guides teachers to better understand how each child is developing along a continuum. As teachers observe children in the classroom, they tailor the curriculum to meet each child’s individual needs. To learn more click here about the developmental continuum.
