In all our work, the Children’s Community School seeks to fulfill eight intersecting core values that support the development of each child, each adult, and the community as a whole.
These core values not only apply to our staff, but are primarily implemented by our staff. Thus, CCS is committed to building community among staff members, involving staff deeply in the life of the school, providing ongoing professional development and opportunities for growth, and affirming and enhancing their quality of life in and outside CCS. By supporting staff in these ways, we enable them to be the best caregivers possible for children and families. CCS’s ability to function and implement our mission also depends on our relationships with a wide variety of non-staff professionals (substitute teachers, service providers for children with special needs, cleaning staff, handyworkers, etc.), and we work to ensure that our core values are reflected in our interactions with them.
