Community Child Care Center (CCCC) is a NAEYC accredited, fully licensed child care center located in the Commonwealth Terrace Cooperative (CTC) on the St. Paul campus of the University of Minnesota. CCCC educates children ages 16 months to 5 years.
CCCC supports the whole child with an "educare" approach. More than 60% of our students are dual language learners, learning English at school while speaking a different language at home. In the face of Minnesota's educational disparities, we take advantage of the curiosity of early learners to build school-readiness skills even before there is a shared language because we want every child to be ready to succeed in school.
Building connections between home and school strengthens a child's foundation for learning. Through education seminars for the whole family and strategic partnerships with other area nonprofits and the University of Minnesota, CCCC serves the family—not just the child—while also building community between families. We offer tailored support to University of Minnesota student families through high quality care, discounted tuition rates, and flexible schedules.
Our fundraising efforts this year feed children's growing bodies through nutritious meals and feed their growing minds through the wonder of science and nature and the freedom of creativity. Thank you for supporting for these projects!
