Program Content

Our program includes:

Daily homework time

Physical fitness activities

Safe, structured, fun activities and games


*Please pack a snack for your child; we will have an allotted time for snack.



Participants will be checked in by CCCC staff upon arrival/dismissal from school. A binder will be located at the front desk. Parents/Guardians will be required to sign your child’s name to note he/she has been dropped off/picked up. Please provide your license during pick up. If the name is not on the drop off/pick up we can’t allow your child to go home with that person unless a note is provided by the parent or guardian. THIS IS AN IMPORTANT RECORD AND SAFETY MEASURE FOR THE CHILDCARE STAFF: YOUR COOPERATION IS APPRECIATED.



Before school care begins at 6:45 a.m.

After school care ends at 6:00 p.m.


**There is an additional charge of $10 per every 15 minutes for late pick-ups, due at the time you pick-up your child. Repeated late pick-ups may result in loss of childcare services.


Drop-off and pick-up should be at the doors facing Rt. 22. You may pull up to the sidewalk instead of parking to drop-off/pick-up for your convenience. Parents/guardians must escort their child into the building and sign them in for before school.
