We will reduce class sizes to maximize safety. We anticipate final approval to open four new classrooms from the DC Office of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs which allows for much needed new space on the second and third floors.
Each of our classes are being considered as independent cohorts. Our cohort groups will not mingle, even when outside. Cohort groups will be kept separate for arrivals, departures, and moving through the hallways at school. Most cohorts do not share a bathroom with other cohorts and there is a cleaning protocol for those that do.
Our lessons will be coordinated across cohorts at each Program Level. The Lead Teachers will develop lesson plans together so that every class cohort is receiving the same curricular content.
New Staff and Teams
As we add new teachers to our wonderful staff, we will put together the strongest pairs to lead each small cohort. We are proud of all the great teachers we have at CCPC and look forward to expanding our team.
Playground Use & Outdoor Time
We are so fortunate to have over 11,000 square feet on our primary
newly renovated playground
in addition to our Summer Camp playground adjacent to Oliver Street. We will also utilize a new “picnic grove” area to the right of the lobby. This will help us maximize time for play and instruction outside including snack time and story time as feasible.
Bathrooms will be dedicated by class as feasible and will be cleaned after each individual and class use. Our shared “buddy baths” will no longer be shared, but rather dedicated for one class with the other class utilizing the hall bath.
