General School Mission

CCC believes that each child is a unique gift from God.
We believe that when we follow the following guidelines we will help our children to grow to be the very best they can be.
1. Acceptance of children as they are, valuing their uniqueness and diversity.
2. Nurturing and supporting children through physical contact and provision of positive verbal reinforcement while expressing forgiveness for actions, which are inappropriate.
3. Facilitation of childrens self understanding through provision of accurate , non-judgmental feedback on their behavior.
4. Maintenance of a secure environment through provision of clear, consistent limits of behavior and by clear accurate explanation of behavior and events.
5. Encouragement for children to develop self-sufficiency through taking responsibility for themselves, their actions, and their environment.
6. Encouragement of clear communication , verbal
expression of feelings, sensitivity to others needs and attunement to one's owns needs.
7. Provide a stimulating environment within which the child will grow intellectually, socially, physically, emotionally, morally, spiritually, and creatively with an emphasis on self worth.
