Christine curry child development center

The major focus and purpose of Christine Curry Child Development Center (CCCDC) is to provide quality and culturally sensitive comprehensive early child development services. Realizing that the appropriate educational setting is paramount to your child’s ability to learn and grow, Christine Curry Child Development Center is centralized in a quiet and secure North Dade County Community. The facility provides an atmosphere that allows the children to discover themselves and the world around them.

The recurring theme of our program revolves around the study of mathematics, reading, writing and contemporary studies, including life enrichment, cultural awareness and physical fitness. We believe that children learn through play, practice, repetition and exposure to new experiences in an environment that fosters learning.

Throughout the day children are exposed to development and life enrichment activities based on instruction through story-telling, audio visual aids, reading and hands on child teacher interactions. A variety of activities allow for free play and quiet reflective settings both indoors and outdoors. Group interaction and individual learning experience are enhanced by assorted field trips and out-of-classroom endeavors. Ample opportunity is provided for self-expression and creativity.

Christine Curry Child Development Center is a participant in the United States Department of Agriculture, State of Florida Department of Health Child Care Food Program. The overall goal of these collaborative efforts is to ensure that well-balanced nutritious meals and snacks are provided to Christine Curry Child Development Center students. Good nutrition, the development of desirable eating habits and learning about food choices are vital building blocks for young children.
