The atmosphere in each classroom is warm, calm, and stimulating. A team of highly trained professional teachers designs and implements a daily program that meets the needs of each child in the group. When a child first enters CCW, we take special care to plan for a successful transition. The children are involved in activities which engage their intellects, emerging language and motor skills, and social emotional development. To assure the continuity of care and education of our children, we maintain a close relationship with schools and community agencies.
The program is administered by Co-Directors, Claudette Logan and Laura Luca, with over 50 years of combined experience. Please contact either Claudette or Laura for information or to schedule a visit to the center.
Program consists of 7 classrooms:
A maximum of seven infants ranging in age from 8 weeks to 15 months old are lovingly cared for by two full time teachers and one teaching assistant. A separate supervised sleeping space allows for peaceful rest for our youngest children.
Our youngest Toddlers ranging in age from 15 months to 2 years, in a group of no more than nine, and cared for by two full time teachers.
Our elder Toddlers remain busy, engaged, and loved in a group of nine ranging in age from 2-2.9 years. This group is cared for by two full time teachers.

CCW serves a well-balanced, nutritious breakfast and hot lunch daily. AM and PM snacks are also provided. Fresh fruit and fruit juices, whole milk and food generally low in sugar and fat are the rule. We are sensitive to food allergies and other dietary requirements.
CCW has always included children with special needs in our Center. When appropriate, referrals are made to early intervention programs, early childhood special education services, and clinics for evaluation. CCW often benefits from the consultation of professionals in meeting the needs of children. Identifying information regarding children with special needs is confidential.
CCW is fortunate to be a culturally diverse community. In an effort to also include families who cannot afford our services, we accept Employment and Training Vouchers from the Department of Early Education and Care. Financial information concerning families is strictly confidential.
Equal Opportunity Act
The center does not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, religion, marital status, sexual preference, disability, or national origin in the administration of its policies or the admission of families. Our curriculum and policies seek to honor and value differences as well as to find common ground and equal opportunity. While respect for each individual is a priority, responsibility to the group and community is also a guiding light for policy and procedure decisions.
