"Every moment is a teachable moment"

OUR CURRICULUM

 

Children learn through play and interaction. PCCC offers MANY opportunities FOR STUDENTS to explore, create and discover the EXCITING world around them. We encourage learning by:

 

  • Assigning children to age-appropriate classrooms with the same teachers throughout the year, assuring consistency and a low teacher-to-child ratio.

  • Providing age-appropriate materials, supplies and activities that challenge young minds.

  • Providing child-size fixtures and furnishings that encourage independence and success.

  • Implementing weekly themes and daily activities that help children make connections and see relationships.

  • Providing a daily schedule that teaches children organization, reliability and trust.

  • Implementing individual, small group and whole group class activities that allow children to interact in a variety of settings.

  • Using music, dance, art, and computers for the imagination.

  • Providing daily outside physical activity, whether playing on the courtyard playgrounds, in our "Roots & Shoots" Garden, or on our winding nature trail.

 


OUR CLASSROOMS


WE FOCUS ON LEARNING DEVELOPMENT, NOT JUST CHILD CARE. 


We divide our 5 learning rooms by age and your child's ongoing developmental level.  Teachers are empowered to create learning activities that focus on children's interests and abilities.  Our teacher-to-child ratio ranges from 1:4 to 1:10 depending on the age group.

Infants: child care for infants 6 weeks through 12 months with emphasis on an environment that caters to each child’s individual needs.

Toddlers: child care for toddlers 12 months through 2 years old with emphasis on exploration, manipulation, and language.

Preschool: full-day preschool for 3 to 5 year-olds with more emphasis on academic skills and Kindergarten readiness.

Before and After Care: before and after school care during the school year for kindergarten students through age twelve.

Summer Programs: full-day week-by-week summer camp program for elementary students  through age twelve. Two weekly field trips per week throughout the summer. 

Drop Off Care: available for pre-registered parents as space allows. Care also available for snow days, teacher workdays, and school holidays.  Call ahead to schedule.
