We have been a part of this community for the past year after a stressful cross country move and desperate attempt to find a good childcare center in LA. CCLC-UPC has been wonderful! Simply outstanding. We are so grateful that our kids (now 5 and 20 months) got in. Teachers are caring and highly in touch with both students and parents. My 20 month old daughter LOVES her teachers and the curriculum is thoughtful and has the children engaged in a variety of sensory, movement, art and play activities. My 5 yr old son has blossomed in his class, still playing tons but learning about science, dinosaurs, bugs, and basic literacy and math skills. Paula Lamar is terrific as the principal overseeing the program. Individuality is celebrated, while children also learn how to get along with their peers. This is a gem of a school. Very warm and welcoming.
