The goals of the CCDS preschool are to create a preschool that:

  • Offers small, individualized class size with a low teacher-to-student ratio
  • Provides a safe, joyful environment that celebrates learning through multi-sensory hands-on activities
  • Encourages children to discover their environment, learn new skills and concepts, engage in activities and gain independence
  • Stimulates creative expression through art, drama, music, dance and movement
  • Welcomes parent participation to create a partnership in learning
  • Supports children in becoming lifelong learners with a positive self image
