PACCC’s Preschool Centers offer enriching and engaging care for children ages 2 until entry into kindergarten. Our experienced teachers are passionate about combining social and emotional growth with age-appropriate educational experiences using a holistic approach (read more about our child development philosophy). We individualize a development path suited for each child - whether that involves a particular diapering/toilet training plan, a learning style that is especially physical, or a personality that can be shy around others.  We value the unique needs of each child.

By the time PACCC children leave our programs for kindergarten, they know that other children can become friends, teachers are caring, and learning is fun.

All of the centers have excellent facilities to support both indoor and outdoor experiences.

Our programs provide healthy, freshly cooked meals prepared by a chef trained in nutrition.

Enrollment in a PACCC Preschool Center gives families priority enrollment for available spaces into the PACCC After School Kids’ Club located at their elementary school, saving parents from uncertainty for the future and ensuring a continuity of care.
