Reopening a center during a pandemic is something none of us have never experienced before. We have missed our children immensely and we want to share with you a behind the scenes of all our staff, teachers, and administrations’ hard work and preparation in welcoming our children and families back.
Dear CCC Community,
The attached presentation describes the new rules and expectations in detail regarding our operations plan. This is in accordance with guidelines and requirements from licensing, local and state public health authorities, and the CDC.
We hope to see you all soon!
We are thankful for and proud of all our early learning educators and staff members for their incredibly hard work during this unprecedented time, which has enabled our program to serve children and families.
During this week of Teacher Appreciation, we recognize our teachers for their dedication, talent, adaptability, and compassion. You truly are appreciated!
Please join us in thanking our CCC teachers and staff!
Dear CCC Families,
We miss seeing all of you and your children around the center. Since the center closed back in March in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve worked hard to provide support to our teachers and families. We hope you have been able to participate in zoom music classes with Dayita, use the weekly curriculum with activities for your children, and/or read articles we’ve shared on how to get through this crisis.
We have been able to continue this work without taking tuition payments, in hopes that you can focus on balancing work and family without the added financial burden. Our ability to do this, however, is dependent on our resources to pay teachers and staff during this crisis because 90% of your tuition goes to the Teachers’ and Staff’s payroll and benefits.
Years ago, we had the foresight to slowly build savings to continue paying teachers and staff in the event of a crisis. Today, this Emergency Relief Fund is being quickly depleted.
If you are able to do so, please consider making a gift to replenish the CCC Emergency Relief Fund to ensure the future of our center.
This fundraiser is replacing our spring event, Evening Under the Stars. This is an important source of income for the CCC so please consider contributing what you can to the GoFundMe fundraiser or consider donating all or a portion of the tuition you would have paid in March, April, and May to the CCC Emergency Relief Fund.
You can donate online through our GoFundMe campaign Replenish CCC’s Emergency Relief Fund or by check payable to the Children’s Center at Caltech, sent to 1200 E California Blvd, MC 1-133, Pasadena, CA 91125.
We look forward to when we can reopen our doors to welcome back your entire family. In the meantime, we hope you are able to support our teachers and staff.
Susan and Teresa
Dear CCC Parents,
We continue to keep all of you in mind as we navigate and plan through this pandemic. Thank you, for your continued support of the CCC during these challenging times.
As the CCC enters its early phase of planning for a future opening date, the operations of our program must adhere to the orders from the County, City, and LA Department of Health, and the CA Community Care Licensing Division. We continue to monitor those directions and recommendations, and share some important information with you here from these departments:
