We had a wonderful experience at CCCP. My son attended there for 3 years and grew so much. He had nurturing and kind teachers. We felt lucky to have found such a great school for our son after moving here from out of state. We toured many preschools in the area and this exceeded our expectations. Our son was more than prepared for kindergarten thanks to his teachers. We highly recommend this preschool to anyone looking for full or half day care. Every staff member that we encountered went above and beyond for our son.
The actual facility is good, clean and up to date. We had a high turnover of teachers the year we were there with no real significance of why there was such a turnover. Other classes seem to be ok. The Director/Owner is not involved much. You hardly saw him at the facility. He couldn't or I should say wouldn't make decisions. He relied on his Business Manager to do so. The Director gave us the impression he cared more about the financial impact and self image than anything else. If you addressed a concern, he told you want you wanted to hear to get you out of his office. Not confrontational at all. He made a lot of promises but never followed through. Not that this has anything to do with the facility but more of his character, he would constantly remind parents that he must be doing something right cause his child was in the same class with a child of a local elementary principal. It was almost like he was better than everyone. I also got the impression that it was more of a clique among the teachers and the families. You definitely need to start your child at a very young age in order to be accepted among the staff especially the front office staff.
I have two kids there and have been attending for 4 years now. I have been thrilled! Especially when I hear horror stories about other centers in the area. Whenever I've had an issue (never anything major) it has always been addressed right away. I can't say enough about the wonderful staff and teachers there!
We've been sending our son to this school since it opened, and I feel like a lot of the promises that were made when they opened are falling by the wayside. We are currently looking for a new school for our son.
The Children's Center is an excellent preschool. The teachers my daughter has had have been warm and caring. The school building is safe and attractive. In two years of attending we have not had a single problem. I have been more than pleased with this school.
