Overview of school type:

  • Schedule: Half day
  • Not a parent co-op
  • Curriculum: Play-based curriculum
  • Secular

Profile: At 4CCN, we believe that children have a natural curiosity and a strong desire to learn. We also believe that play is the work of children and that it is through meaningful play experiences that children’s overall development is fostered. Teachers at 4CCN support children’s natural curiosity by providing them with relevant, developmentally appropriate activities and materials that enable them to experiment and create. Information is not taught in isolation—it is integrated into the daily events and connected to the children’s experiences. Our curriculum is based on the principle that children who have a positive sense of self, a respect for others, creative and critical thinking skills, and a sense of community will be well prepared for school and life.
