Kaneville Community Child Center (KCCC) is a Preschool and Childcare center located in the heart of Kaneville. The children we educate and care for live in Kaneville and its surrounding communities where hometown values and family come first. We have been in operation since 1986, and even have former students returning to KCCC with their own children!
Our programs include Beginning Learners Daycare, Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten, Before and After Care for students who attend Blackberry Creek Elementary, and School Age Care for the summer as well as on Kaneland days off through the school year.
We take great pride in being recognized by some of our school district’s Kindergarten teachers as “the most Kindergarten ready“. The teachers at KCCC support a play-based curriculum where they incorporate STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Mathematics) activities into a fun learning theme for each week. Your child will practice writing his or her name daily and focus on a new letter and number each week. Reading to your child is a priority at KCCC and we are fortunate to share our building with the Kaneville Public Library Your student will have regular visits to the library for story time, thematic activities, and special guests. Preschool, PreK, and Beginning Learners Daycare participate in regular music classes at least twice a month. The children in these programs will have two performances; a Christmas performance in December followed by their Spring Sing in April.
Our building is rich in history as it used to be a high school as well as an elementary school. It is currently the hub of Kaneville. Your child will have an indoor gym/auditorium to use for playing inside when the weather is poor. Your family will use the gym and stage for family functions like our Thanksgiving Feast, the music performances, and a sweet Graduation/Promotion ceremony at the end of the school year. Playing outside as much as possible is important for your child. KCCC has the use of two different playgrounds as well as the pavilion behind the school.
Part of the charm of being established in Kaneville is our close connections and partnerships with local businesses which help our students develop a strong sense of community and teaches them to value their place in it. The local businesses look forward to our students’ visits on holidays and during “Community Helpers Week” in the fall. We also teach the children the value of helping others less fortunate or in need by supporting other non-profit organizations such as Operation Christmas Child through Kaneland United Methodist Church and Holiday Spirit through Conley Outreach.
