  • Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) Approved Preschool Curriculum

    CACC’s 3- and 4-year olds use the inquiry-based curriculum, The InvestiGator Club. This program builds upon children’s natural curiosity about the world. “Purposeful Inquiry”, the heart of The InvestiGator Club, awakens the scientist and the explorer in every child. Children learn to use their senses, ask questions, and find answers in a supportive, print-rich environment.
    Healthy Beginnings, our 2-year old program, focuses on developmentally appropriate activities that build young children’s skills.

    Free Play in Classroom Centers

    Play allows children to use their creativity while developing their imagination, dexterity, and physical, cognitive, and emotional strength. Play is important to healthy brain development. It is through play that children at a very early age engage in and learn about the world around them. pediatrics.aapublications.org

    Maryland Child Care Food Program (CCFP) Approved Snacks and Meals

    CACC provides a thoughtfully designed menu that follows CCFP guidelines, which provides children with a balanced and nutritious breakfast, lunch supplement (milk and fruits or vegetables), and an afternoon snack.

    Quiet Rest Time For Our Preschool Children

    Rest time gives children a midday chance to physically rest and emotionally unwind, and it also helps children to stay healthy and alert during the afternoon.
