Our Programs

At CEC we see learning as a continual process rather than broken into discrete levels.  Children in all programs are exposed to rich and varied developmentally appropriate experiences that include art, music, nature studies, neighborhood walks, field trips, and computer exposure.  As they progress through CEC’s programs, we provide enrichment programs including swimming, dance, cooking, and drama that help prepare children for kindergarten. 

Our teachers, many of whom have at least five years of experience, focus on encouraging and praising independence, while ensuring that each child’s need for comfort and personal attention is recognized.  CEC's high teacher-to-child ratios makes it possible for our teachers to provide highly personalized care and a loving, supportive atmosphere that fosters growth in self-help, competence, and creativity.

CEC offers five separate home-based rooms where children can explore and learn according to their individual level of maturity.  These five programs include:

Infants (3 to 15 months)
Toddlers (15 months to 2 years)
Two’s (2 years to 3 years)
Preschool (3 years to 4 years)
Pre-K (4 years to kindergarten or 1st grade entry)
