• Room 4 at the Carmel Child Development Center (CCDC) provides a safe and nurturing environment for children 3 years 9 months to 4 years 2 months.  The Teacher to child ratio is 1:8. The teacher provides a developmentally appropriate program designed to develop each child’s critical thinking, sense of competence, and positive feeling toward learning. We believe children are active learners who learn best from activities that are concrete, real, and relevant to their lives. Our program is based on the premise that children learn about the world through their social interactions. Children are encouraged to be active participants in discussions and explorations with the class.
