Child Care Center

Child Care

The CCC Child Care Center is open to children of CCC students, staff, faculty, and alumni. The Center provides care for children 18 months to 5 years during the Fall and Spring semesters.

The CCC Child Care Center provides a safe and nurturing environment while promoting the physical, social, emotional, and intellectual development of young children.

  • Planned learning activities appropriate to each child’s age and stage of development, such as dress up, painting, and outdoor play
  • An inclusive environment
  • Nutritious meals and snacks
  • Low child to adult ratios
  • Building security

Every effort will be made to ensure that each child feels safe and secure at the Center. It is the Center’s goal to instill the highest level of confidence in the students so that they can pursue their educational endeavors, knowing that their children are in a trustworthy and nurturing environment.

Parent Involvement

Parent participation in the CCC Child Care Center is welcomed and encouraged. The Center has an open door policy which means that parents may visit anytime without advance notice.


The children are served nutritious meals including breakfast, hot lunch, and an afternoon snack at no additional cost to the parent. Menus are posted at the Center and a copy is sent home.


Registration is ongoing; however, early registration is encouraged. It is necessary to complete all registration materials before your child can attend the Center. These materials can be picked up at the Child Care Center or can be mailed to you upon request. Because enrollment is limited, returning children have first priority. New children are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.

  • Fees are based on a sliding fee scale (one that is based on income and family size)
  • Security Deposit (per family) $25.00
  • Registration fee (per child) $15.00
