Our classrooms

We currently enroll 80 children total in our seven rooms. Child-staff ratios vary within each of the seven classrooms and are at or below state licensing limits.  Each classroom is designed to serve children of a particular age range, but teachers adjust activities to meet the developmental needs of the current children enrolled. Open-ended provocations offered to follow the interests of the children while promoting stimulation and appropriate challenges and meeting age-appropriate developmental goals.

 

All of our programs operate year-round. Our Butterflies Classroom is the only room offering a different type of program in the summer.  The Butterflies (our oldest classroom) converts to a Summer Camp Program for rising kindergarteners from May to August each year.  There is a supplemental fee for those attending the pre-kindergarten summer camp to help cover additional field trip costs. We have seven classrooms at WCCC.

Summer Camp Program
The Summer Camp Program is a fun, kindergarten readiness summer program and is offered to five-year-olds who have graduated from WCCC's Preschool Program.  There are up to 16 children and two teachers in this class, with additional staff when off-site.  This exciting program is field trip-heavy and provides children with a wide exposure to Charlottesville and the surrounding area through an array of interesting activities.  There is a one-time summer camp fee in addition to the monthly tuition, which helps cover trip expenses. (Note: This program runs from the day after Memorial day until the middle of August and operates out of the Butterflies classroom.)
