Programs

"Education is the most powerful weapon which   you can use to change the world". Nelson Mandela
​Infants


Infants bond with a primary caregiver who follows his/her feeding schedule and attends to his/her daily needs.  Parents will receive a daily report of everything from diaper changes and feedings to daily activities such as walks in the park or painting footprints.  Every infant receives his/her own crib and personalized cubby to hold all their special items.  

Toddlers

Early toddlers begining at 18 months  explore their world through sensory and discovery play.

At this age toddlers begin to mimic fingerplays and repeat every new word they learn.  Older toddlers in their twos begin to potty train, sit for circle time, and start making meaning to their scibbles.  Teachers  use a child-centered approach to teach colors, shapes, letters, and counting through play.

Preschool & Our new Before Care & After Care Program


Preschoolers 3 to 5 who are potty- trained enter a classroom full of exploration.  Centers help children choose an area to focus on allowing him/her to learn through dramatic play, science and math, reading and writing, blocks and manipulatives, art, and library.  At this age children begin to trace their names, cut with scissors, and engage in meaningful play with friends.

We are also offering before care and after care classes for children at the So. Amboy Elementary School. We will drop off at 8:30 a.m. and pick them back up at 2:40 p.m. Monday through Friday. Call for more information regarding our reasonable rates.

Summer Camp
 

Children ages 5-10 can an enjoy a summer of fun at the CCL.  Whether it is a trip to a park, outdoor arts and crafts, bouncing in the bounce house or sliding down our famous water slide, every child will find something he/she loves to do.  Each week provides a new and exciting theme-filled week with activities and once a week they will receive a catered meal.  There is an extra large outdoor fenced in area for safety while still allowing children to run free in the warm summer breeze.
