It might be helpful to download our Family Handbook. Within these pages you will find the rules of our school, an explanation of the services we offer, and our expectations for the early childhood education for your child. You will also find specific directions for implementing any of the procedures necessary for your involvement in our school. We hope you will find this information useful.
Is there an opening for my child?
Openings are based on current enrollment in our developmentally age appropriate classrooms. Individual classroom enrollment can change during the course of a year, or a classroom registration can remain constant. Please call the Preschool Office at (949) 586-5030 to check if there are openings for your child.
Is my child just going to be "playing" at preschool or will he/she be "learning"?
Curriculum at CCP includes a biblically centered developmentally appropriate approach of learning where the activities are teacher-directed. Experiences offered to young children support and enrich their development physically, emotionally, socially, spiritually, and cognitively. CCP uses Zoo-phonics and ABC Jesus Loves Me, as guides for planning the curriculum in each of its program rooms.
Each classroom has weekly lesson plans, posted in the classroom. These plans contain a number of activities, designed to foster each child’s development, and the development of the group as a whole. Lesson plans should be changed in order to accommodate the children’s changing interests.
Each classroom is set up in centers, which include blocks, dramatic play, books, gross motor, fine motor, and art. Outdoor play is important to a child’s physical development and must be included in both the morning and afternoon schedule. Self-selection, or free play is a daily part of the curriculum and means a child has the opportunity to choose which center or activity he/she participates in. This promotes creative expression and development of important social skills.
Does my child have to be potty trained?
Children who are 2 years of age and in process of potty training can be accepted as of September 2016. We encourage the use of pull-ups instead of diapers and ask that each child keep several extra pull-ups in their bucket with their spare set of clothes.

Do you provide snacks and lunches?
Our snack, which meets state guidelines, is served each morning. Day care afternoon snack will be provided by the families from their child's lunch box.
It is the responsibility of the family to provide a nutritious lunch for your child. Please provide only the amount of food which your child would normally eat. For example, if your child only eats one-half of a sandwich, send only one-half of a sandwich.
For health/safety reasons, the following items should not be included in your child's lunch:
• Beverages in glass or aluminum cans
• Containers with pull-top lids
