Building a Community of Engaged Learners for over 30 Years


The Claremont Presbyterian Children’s Center (CPCC) is located in the City of Claremont, California. Beginning as a Mothers’ Day Out drop in program, and evolving into a full time year round children’s center, we have served families for over thirty years. Our teachers provide a comfortable, safe, nurturing environment for children from six weeks to five years old. Each class has developmentally appropriate curriculum with weekly lesson plans built around a central theme or question. The emphasis is on building a community of engaged learners. We are proud to say that we are a NAEYC accredited institution!

  • Both my daughters have been at CPCC since they were 9 weeks old. The teachers are caring and friendly and very conscientious about safety. Every day my daughters play and learn in a safe, supportive environment. The curriculum is innovative and creative. As a first time mom with no experience with children I was thrilled to have so many caring experts to rely upon!

  • CPCC is an innovative childcare and preschool center. My daughter is 2, and she's been there since she was eight weeks old. The teachers are caring and very experienced, and the Director is committed to a world class early childhood education experience, including lots of arts enrichment programming led by some of the best local artists and teachers.

  • All of the nervousness of going back to work and enrolling my two children in school went away when I saw how happy and well cared for they were at CPCC.  The culture at CPCC promotes kindness, socialization, as well as independence.  Thanks to the patient and cooperative staff, my youngest can continue to use cloth diapers and my oldest actually naps!

At CPCC our mission is to provide quality childcare and age appropriate education for each child, regardless of race, creed or religion, in a loving Christian environment.  We believe that each child is a unique individual, with developmental needs and interests of their own. Therefore, we design our programs so that children learn at their own pace, in an environment of play.


All children are accepted regardless of race, creed or religious affiliation. However, due to our limited enrollment capacity, we may have a waiting list for a given age group.
