diggingWe believe early education is the foundation for a strong sense of community. The success of each child’s experiences and learning is dependent upon the relationship between staff, family, and children.

Giving your child the highest quality early childhood education and care is the best gift you can give them. Our center is Nationally Accredited through NAC going above and beyond Florida DCF standards with low student to teacher ratio, individual learning plans and educated teachers and staff.

Through a Creative Curriculum Approach and a play-based environment, our students participate in project work that is hands-on and allows them to explore topics and questions based on their interests and familiar knowledge. Learning and Play are not separate. Children develop a sense of curiosity and desire to learn through this method of teaching.

The Community Children's Center is home to the Reggio-Emilia inspired Art Studio where the children have the opportunity to explore different artistic mediums and excel using their creativity. Children use different materials to represent concepts that they are learning about in a hands-on way.  We are dedicated to providing a stimulating education in a safe and nurturing environment that fosters our children’s growth for a lifetime of learning.
