Our Parent Handbook

4CCN Preschool offers much more to your child than “just play.” It gives him a chance to spend time in a physical environment that is scaled to and planned for him, and where there are a minimum of negative regulations about what he cannot touch or do. At 4CCN he will enjoy a wide variety of materials, which include, numerous age appropriate toys, books, music, and art. He will also play with a number of children near his own age, and he will increase his awareness of the world by learning to understand the richness of things around him.


[For 2016-2017] Applications for enrollment are welcome from all children in the community. Application for admission will require a copy of your child’s birth certificat, a completed registration form, and a registration fee of $50, which is non-refundable. Also required at the time of registration is the May 2017 tuition (to be held in an escrow-like account until May 2017), which may be refundable providing specific conditions are adhered to. The Director reserves the right to request withdrawal of any child at any time for reasons deemed necessary by her.
