Whether you're looking for a preschool or daycare, the Congregational Children's Center (CCC) is a truly awesome place for kids. To learn more about the center personally from our CCC Director, Mindy Tretera, call 760-789-3329 or email ccc@fccramona.org. Here are some of the basics.

The Congregational Children's Center is our church's preschool and daycare facility. Located on the premises, CCC is a nonprofit, Christian preschool and daycare center established to provide a safe, loving environment where children can learn and grow into happy, well-rounded individuals. Our program is open to children ages 18 months to 12 years, regardless of race, religion or national origin. Preschool and extended care are offered for the younger children. Our Before and After School Program provides a safe, comfortable place for children in grades K - 6.  Parents or guardians are welcome to visit whenever possible.  CCC is licensed by the State of California (#372005051 & #372005786) and has been serving the Ramona community for more than twenty years.

Our Philosophy: Children are unique individuals who learn "through doing". The Congregational Children's Center will provide a safe place for each child to successfully experience group interaction, language activities, dance, art, music, and more. When treated with care and respect, children learn to treat others with kindness and to appreciate each other's differences.


Our Goals: By providing the opportunity to choose from a variety of stimulating, hands on activities, children will be encouraged to develop their special talents and interests while learning group social and listening skills. Through informal religious instruction, including prayers, Bible stories and songs, children will be encouraged to adopt Christian values in their lives. Children will be encouraged to value and accept the unique qualities of each individual. Staff will provide guidance and direction with unconditional love.


Behavioral Expectations: The center's staff looks forward to working with all children. In order to provide a safe learning environment, appropriate behavior is expected. The Board reserves the right to exclude a child for inappropriate behavior.

Discipline Policy: Discipline is not punitive. The following discipline techniques are used to teach appropriate behavior: diversion, problem solving, conflict resolution, and time out. Parents will be notified of serious or continuing behavioral problems so that we may work together to best serve your child.

Tuition: Our current rate schedule can be found here. Tuition is due and payable in advance on the first of each month. Payment will be considered delinquent if not received by the 15th day of each month and will accrue a late charge of 10% of the unpaid balance if not received by the 15th of month, until the account is current. A fee of up to $25 will be charged on all returned checks. Billing is calculated on an average month so regardless of attendance no credits, deductions, or refunds can be made for absences. A two-week written notice is required for contract changes or student withdrawal. Parents of children who are picked up after 6:00 p.m. will be charged at a rate of $14 per fifteen (15) minutes or part thereof, with a minimum charge of $14.
