Child care service is a fee-for-services component providing high quality childcare at 6 of CCA’s Child Development Centers in Craven, Carteret and Pamlico Counties. Parents utilize this service in conjunction with Head Start, Early Head Start, and NC Pre-K for wrap around care or in a full-day, full-year capacity. Numerous child care options are available to meet the needs of parents who are working, in job training, or in school. Through this component, we serve children whose families are provided child care subsidy through the Department of Social Services, or who privately pay for services if they do not receive or qualify for public assistance.
In all of our children’s programs, we offer a developmentally-appropriate curriculum, materials, and equipment for children. Lesson plans reflect abundant child-focused learning activities designed to enhance the development of math, science, language and literacy skills. Individualization occurs regularly to ensure that each child has opportunities to build self esteem through positive feedback and one-on-one adult-child interactions. Children are provided portion and nutritionally-approved meals funded by the USDA’s Child and Adult Care Food Program.
