When CCS first opened, in 2014, we originally offered instruction for high school and upper level middle school. We quickly saw the need to offer our one-on-one based small group instruction to all grade levels.
Our Kinder Philosophy: kindergarten = happy, noisy, busy children. The groundwork for good school performance begins early and our kindergarteners have thrived as students.
Evidence suggests that high-quality early years play-based learning enriches educational development: both emotionally and socially in terms of academic achievement. For this reason, we like to highlight physical activity and creative play. We believe that carefully organized play helps develop qualities such as attention span, determination, concentration and problem solving. With a mix of “free play” and teacher-directed play, the children’s development is constantly evaluated.
One of our goals is to help them develop good social habits: to learn how to make friends and respect others; to dress themselves competently, etc. More formal guidance emphasizes the importance in the “joy of learning”, with language enrichment and communication, thus making children happier and less stressed.
Our learning-to learn strategy will include but is not limited to the following: social and emotional learning, art and crafts, * multiliteracy, digital skills, music, foreign language, and entrepreneurship. Our classroom environment is designed to engage their minds, meet their sensory needs, and offer practice with academic content.
We want to prepare every student with the skills, knowledge and attitudes needed for success!
Kindergarten enrollment is extremely limited, as the level of individualized care we offer is successful based on strict student teacher ratio.
We only offer 5 spots for our kinder program and currently have 4 spots available. Enrollment and tuition are the same as grades 1st-6th and sibling discounts.
Please see the chart below for details. Enrollment is on a first-come first-serve basis.
$500 enrollment fee and $400.00/month tuition unless a sibling discount is to be applied.

* Literacy traditionally means “the ability to read and write; a synthesis of language, context, and thinking that shapes meaning” (Cope & Kalantzis 2000; Walsh 2010). The term multiliteracies takes into account how literacy has been influenced by “social, cultural, and technological change” This approach enables teachers to be creative in the literacy classroom by integrating movies, the Internet, music, art, photos and a range of other digital resources (Multiliteracies expanding teacher's creativity 2011).
