Our Mission Statement
Building a strong foundation for children and their families.
Statement of Philosophy
CCCC provides a safe and nurturing atmosphere that fosters development of the whole child, with an emphasis on social skills, independence, non-violence, problem-solving, and creativity, so that children can grow to their fullest potential. CCCC offers a positive workplace environment in which early childhood educators can continue to learn, grow and contribute as professionals. CCCC promotes family involvement as an integral component of each child’s care and education.
CCCC respects individual and cultural differences and is committed to providing non-biased services to families and staff, regardless of race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, gender, socio-economic status, physical or mental ability, or family composition.
The center provides developmentally appropriate activities in a safe and nurturing environment that enhances the growth and learning of each child. We provide schedules that allows parents to choose full-day day care or part week schedules (if available). Additional part-time options are available when space permits.
A volunteer Board of Directors oversees all programs. The board meets each month and the meetings are open to the public.
Corvallis Community Day Care, Inc. was established as a non-profit corporation in 1968. From the beginning, the members of the corporation have been the parents of children in care, employees, and members of the Board of Directors. Over the years the organization grew to three centers serving children aged six weeks to five years.
In 1992, the corporate name was changed to Corvallis Community Children’s Centers, Inc. (CCCC). CCCC has cared for thousands of children. All centers are licensed by the State Child Care Division and comply with all operational, program, and health and safety regulations.
In 2012, CCCC moved the Growing Oaks center to the Riverside Community Church. In February of 2013, CCCC consolidated the Monroe Center into the Lancaster and Growing Oaks Centers. The Growing Oaks campus, unfortunately, was closed during the Covid-19 pandemic. As of 2021, CCCC is currently operating just one center in the Corvallis area.
CCCC is an equal opportunity childcare provider and employer dedicated to serving the needs of all children and families, regardless of race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, physical or mental ability, or family composition.
