Extended Closure
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, CCCC is closed for an extended period. CCCC parents should log in for updates on our status and for resources to support distance learning.


The Clarendon Child Care Center, Inc. (CCCC) is a unique preschool program for children age 2 ½ to 6 years old.

Child-centered, Experiential Learning

Our program provides a creative environment that nurtures the social, emotional, physical and intellectual development of each child.  Highly-qualified teachers engage children in developmentally appropriate activities that are directed by the children’s interests and needs.  Learning is fostered through exploration and play.

In our multi-age setting, children learn to become members of a community while developing independence and social skills.  The atmosphere of openness goes beyond the physical environment of the classroom and playground – responsive teachers encourage the children to develop social awareness, creativity and problem solving skills. binoculars

Unique Parent Cooperative Structure

Our unique parent cooperative structure provides all parents – including parents who work full-time outside of the home – opportunities to be involved in CCCC.  As a member of our parent cooperative, you gain a voice in school decisions and policy making, a support network of parents and teachers with shared interests and concerns, an education in child development and parenting skills, and the chance to participate in your child’s education.
