We are permanently located in our own building near Westover Air Reserve Base. We are easily accessible from Memorial Drive (Rt. 33), the MA turnpike, and from main roads leading from Holyoke, South Hadley, and surrounding communities.
Our center is open year-round, Monday through Friday, with the exception of the major holidays. Our hours are 7:00 am to 5:30 pm.
Children may be enrolled who have reached the age of 2 years and 9 months to 7 years old. Families must visit CCDC for a tour and to complete all necessary paperwork for admission. Tours may be schedules by contacting the Business Administrator or Director at 413-593-3942.
Our staff follows the Creative Curriculum for Preschool and is motivated by the philosophy that each child is an individual with their own unique needs, concerns, and interests. We believe our center is a place of learning on both formal and informal levels where each child is able to reach their full potential. We nurture the social, emotional, physical, language, and cognitive growth and development of all children. The children participate in a safe and stimulating environment, designed to foster opportunities to foster independence, exploration, and creativity.
We are proud to be a NAEYC accredited center serving the needs of children and families for over 48 years! We would love the opportunity to serve you!
