The Children’s Community Development Center (CCDC), is a non-profit, educational childcare center serving families with children from infancy through their preschool years. Professionals in early childhood care and education established CCDC in 1979. The program provides enrichment and support to families and children who live or work in mid-Fairfield County, Connecticut. We earned accreditation from the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) in 1988 and have continuously maintained our accreditation since then.
CCDC was founded as a parent cooperative and continues to embrace this philosophy in spirit and in practice. While day-to-day management is the responsibility of the professional staff, parents provide support and direction. Staff are a resource for developmental and practical care giving knowledge while parents volunteer time and skills as needed. CCDC is managed by a Board of Directors, which consists primarily of representatives from the parent body. Meetings are open to all members of the organization.
The cooperative nature of CCDC contributes to a strong sense of community.
