Children's Community Center (CCC): Spring Open House
Please join Children’s Community Center (CCC) for our annual fall Open House on Saturday, March 7th from 10am – 12pm. This is a great opportunity for families to get to know our unique school. We invite parents and children to spend the morning with us to learn more about our program, meet teachers and other parents, learn how the co-op functions and, of course, play!
We have two classrooms, the Front Yard is for children who will be 2.9 years by September 1, 2020, the Back Yard is for children who will be four by September 1, 2020.
CCC has been around for 93 years and is the pioneer cooperative nursery school in California, and one of the first in the country. CCC is a play-based/developmental cooperative preschool. The curriculum, based on principles and beliefs about the way children grow and learn, is that children at the preschool age learn best through play. Play-based programs have been shown to be very helpful in preparing children for academic settings. Children at CCC have a great deal of choice in how they spend their time. Appropriate social interaction is also a major goal of a developmental program.
We are also committed to the ideals of anti-bias and non-exclusionary play. Because we live in a society with negative biases about gender, race, cultural backgrounds, disabilities and family structures, we believe in actively fostering children’s anti-bias development. Our program helps children appreciate their similarities and differences, and respect, value and comfortably interact with diverse people.
CCC offers year round care: early morning care from 8-9am as well as after care from 12:30-5:30pm, Monday through Friday during the regular academic year. Full time summer care is also offered.
Morning program tuition is $679/month for the 2019-20 school year. Contract early and aftercare rates are $10.50 per hour. Prices may go up slightly for the 2020-21 year. Financial aid is available.

We are located at 1140 Walnut Street in Berkeley. Hope to see you on March 7th!
