  • Little Learners - 30 months by Sept. 1st to 3 years old & fully potty trained

  • Preschool - 3 years old by Sept. 1st to 4 years old & fully potty trained

  • Pre-K - 4 years old by Sept. 1st to 5 years old

All early learning classes include options for full day (more than 5 hours), half day (up to 5 hours) and part day (8:45am - 11:15am) enrollment options.  Morning snack, afternoon snack, and hot lunch, which meet state nutritional guidelines, are served to children with us at the corresponding times. 

The early learning program is staffed by highly qualified, experienced teachers who meet or exceed the state educational requirements.  Our researched based curriculum will engage the children through hands-on learning center activities and is designed to meet their individual emotional, social and cognitive needs.  Our philosophy is that children learn best through play in a developmentally appropriate, engaging and nurturing environment.

​Summer Camp is also available at the CPC Kids' Academy!  Fun weekly themes, sports, arts & crafts, and field trips, science fun, and games are just a few of the exciting offerings included in our summer camp program. A calendar of tentative events will be available March 1, 2021.


Registration will begin January 18th for currently enrolled families and will open up to the community on February 1, 2021.



Families are welcome to enroll at the Academy at any time when space is available.  

Priority registration for Fall 2021 is given to our currently enrolled families. Open enrollment begins January 25, 2021.

Once your child is accepted to the Academy, a non-refundable deposit is due to hold your child’s place in a classroom. This deposit will be applied to the first tuition payment.

Due to licensing capacity, the Center can only register a certain number of children; therefore some families may be notified that they have been placed on a wait list until space becomes available.
