Overview of CBCC programs

Each one of our classrooms is a warm and supportive place where a child can develop at his or her own pace. We believe a big part of our job is to assist children with their evolving social and emotional development. Children learn to share, take turns, respect individual differences and work together. Teachers encourage free expression of individual feelings and ideas in an appropriate manner.

Weather permitting, children play outside on our two well equipped playgrounds. Teachers sometimes move classroom activities outside, often taking advantage of an adjacent park. In inclement weather children play in a large indoor recreation room. To complement the curriculum, we provide music and creative movement, and a variety of interesting field trips.

Classrooms
The center has five spacious and light-filled classrooms. We strive to maintain an equal balance of boys and girls, as well as a developmental age span, in each classroom. A child's individual development is always considered in class placement.
