Canton Community Kindergarten Preschool is one of the longest running preschools in the area. Opened in 1967, it has been running continuously since then. We are currently seeing a new generation of children. Parents that were here as children are now sending their own children to CCK. They want their children to feel the love and care that they remember as preschool students. We take into consideration the child's needs and the wishes of each parent to create a caring, loving, nuturing atmosphere for his or her child. We realize that no two children are the same; therefore, each child receives the individual attention he or she needs.
Our prekindergarten curriculum is one of the finest and most inclusive around. We meet with the public kindergarten teachers to ensure that our curriculum will benefit our students and give them the best start for years to come. While we believe that play is our main mission, we create an atmosphere that is inclusive for learning as well as fun.
