We are open year-round, Monday through Friday, from 7:30am to 5:30pm (except for designated holidays and teacher workdays).
As a member-run center, we believe a child's preschool experience is enhanced when parents and teachers work together as partners. A parent-led board works with the director to administer the center’s operations.
Our curriculum is designed to help children develop emotional, physical, and cognitive skills. Play is critical for building foundational experiences with taking risks and navigating social interactions.
Our mission is to provide all children with the high quality and affordable care that they and their parents deserve.
We believe each child is unique and deserves respect and attention. We value each child's cultural heritage and respect the differences among us.
Small class size coupled with dedicated teachers is our model. With a high teacher to student ratio, and low staff and family turnover rates, each child is surrounded by caregivers who have watched them grow—and who know and treat them as an indiviudal.
After a lot of sweat and hard work, Childcare Matters concluded June with a brand new playground.
Childcare Matters was honored to be a finalist for Best Early Childhood Learning Facility in Orange/Chatham County.
This spring, Childcare Matters was honored to receive a partial grant from Strowd Roses to help fund work on our new playground.
Childcare Matters has been a perfect fit for our family. Our daughter loves to go each day, and we feel like she is being watched by trusted friends and family.Lorien
It's a great source of peace to know our children are taken care of by the most dedicated and loving people in the world. It would be hard to overstate how grateful and happy we are to be part of the CCM community.Ceci
My son began in the Star room. We changed from a much larger daycare and we were so pleased to see the incredible progress he’s made while he’s been at CCM. He has truly bloomed!Kirsten
