Vacation Care at CCS

Note: Due to the pandemic, CCS will not be offering Vacation Care during the 2020-21 school year.

CCS offers “vacation care” on days when CCS is closed to meet the needs of families who require year-round care.

Younger children will have a fairly typical day at school, but with different teachers and a much smaller group—they’ll have activities, play time, meals, rest in the afternoon, and so on.

Older children often go on local field trips in the mornings—walking to Clark Park, or the Free Library, or getting a snack at a local cafe. They typically return by lunch time, and have a relaxed afternoon at school.

Who may participate?

  • Any child currently enrolled at CCS, ages 2–6
  • Siblings of enrolled children, ages 3–8
  • CCS alumni, ages 3–8

Note: Children who receive or are entitled to “one-on-one” services at school must have a one-on-one during Vacation Care as well


  • 8:00am–3:00pm
  • On days when older children go on field trips, they will return to school no later than 12:30pm

  • What should children bring?
