Look at what some of our families have to say about us!

"CCDC did an amazing job of getting them ready for school, so a whole lot of credit to you and all the teachers at CCDC . We miss you all!"

"CCDC is a playground of learning!"

"Best gem of a school!  Thank you for taking care of the whole place and making sure that everyone fits in.  We love you!"

"We love seeing Ms Jennifer at the front desk; her sweet greeting everyday turns our day on!"

"Thank you for the assessment.  We have been truly blessed knowing "S" has been in your care.  We will never forget the presence you have had in our lives and even more so in "S's"."

"My child adores her teacher.  She has made such a positive impact on her life; especially all the snuggles and hugs.  We could not be more grateful for CCDC.  Thank you for everything with both of our daughters. Truly blessed.  We love you!!!"

"Thank you so much for keeping us informed of "M's" progression. She loves coming to school and you have been a very important part of it. She looks forward to learning and is excited to see what activities you have planned for the class.  I want to thank you for far exceeding expectations. My wife and I are very happy with the teaching methods to get all of the little ones ready for kindergarten.  It really does help to have someone like you who cares about the students."

"What an amazing school.  We've loved every minute of it!  Thanks for taking such wonderful care of our children and their education."

"Quote from a Four Year Old: "I love my teacher because she loves me.  Also because she talks funny and makes me laugh."

" 'R' is a huge fan and just loves her teacher like a friend.  Thank you for helping her develop good habits like cleaning up her mess.  We just love it when she sings "God Our Father" before every meal. She is learning a lot of faith as well as academics."

"I wanted to thank you for everything you have done for our son.  We were worried about him leaving our home and being in others hands and how he would react and behave.  You did great with the care of "A". You worked with us on improving his behavior and his eating habits.  You gave great suggestions and information for improving A's health.  We were blessed to have you as his teacher."

"We love CCDC!  Thank you so much for all you do for "P" and our family  You do it with genuine care and with excellence, and we are blessed. We are so grateful!"

"We just looked at the memory book that you sent home today and just wanted to say a BIG thank you for your efforts in the past year. "V" has grown and learned so much and that would not have been possible without the hard work of his teachers and aides. We'll look back at this past year with great fondness as one never forgets their first teacher!"

"I want to thank you for such an amazing Mother's Day Tea Party. It means so much that you put all that time and work into making the moms feel special. I love that you are teaching the children to honor their parents...especially around Mothers and Father's Day. You are truly a blessing to "G" and our family!!!"

"THANK YOU for working with "S"; she has progressed so much and I see all your devotion for her as well as the others in her class."

"You have truly been an amazing teacher for "M". Your creativity, your passion, and your focus on making learning fun and interesting but also challenging -- it's been a real gift."

"A" loved the Dino unit. That is all she talks about. She still carries her fossil around everywhere, it is a miracle it has not broken yet. The fossil has been her favorite craft this year! Thanks for all the fun activities you do with the kids."

"My daughter has progressed a lot since fall. We sure to appreciate you and the wonderful school experiences you give her everyday!!"

"I cannot even tell you how amazing you and your school are. Of course, I always knew that. We miss you guys. Thank you for loving our children so much. Every teacher, every person at CCDC gives 100% of their love, patience, tolerance, and affection. I have never felt anything but complete peace in leaving my children every morning in your care."

"Thank you so much for what you are doing, it has made a great impact in her life as well as ours. We are blessed to have you."

"Thank you so much for the prayer lesson today. C was upset with his little brother on the way home from school. As soon as we walked through the door, he told me, "I'm all better now. I prayed to God to help me not be mad at my brother anymore. It helped." I asked him where he learned that.  He told me all about your prayer discussions.  He said he was happy he shared his "night time" prayer with the class. Thanks so much for nurturing them."

"M has definitely enjoyed being in your class. We have seen him grow and learn so much during this year and it's hard to believe that the school year is almost over. We are very thankful for your kindness, patience and love  towards M and the rest of the class. You and Ms. Rosario have been a blessing!"

"We appreciate your thorough assessment of G's development. We too feel fortunate and blessed to have you as his teacher; but more importantly, G is the one who is most happy to have you as his teacher."

"Thank you so much for your patience and dedication, this has been a great experience for our son; he really loves his school  and enjoys every single school day.  We can really tell how much he has learned and grown the time he's been at CCDC. Huge thanks to you!"

"Natalie was best prepared for reading; since the beginning of the year to now she has always placed above level in kindergarten reading tests."

"Ellie has transitioned into Kindergarten very seamlessly.  Ellie was most prepared in terms of her basic   foundation to be led by instruction and to respect authority and her peers."

"My son had a positive outlook on school because of his positive experiences at CCDC and has made a smooth transition and is doing well.  I miss seeing kids doing more  hands on crafts/creations that don't happen in kindergarten anymore."

"I was most impressed with Shelby's grasp on tons more sight words than other kids in her Kindergarten class.There isn't anything I can think of she wasn't prepared for. CCDC is the bomb!"

"Julie – we love your school as do our children. We have found your curriculum to be excellent and confidence boosting for our kids. Really preps them well for Kindergarten."

"Lucy was most prepared in reading and following direction. And "detail coloring." 

(excerpt after reading an email from the teacher)

" 'K'. loved the Ghost busters song. He had a few friends over to trick-or-treat with us and he insisted on playing the Ghostbuster song so he and his friends (including E.) could dance to the song. They were quite a riot! I also meant to tell you a while ago - K. loved the day you drove the bus to the space museum/rocket museum. Usually I get sparse details about what he did in school, but the day you took that make believe trip he went on and on about his day at school and informing us all about rockets! He even told our neighbor all about it. Thank you for all the fun and creative activities you do with the kids. He is enjoying this school year!!"                                           


"Thanks so much for making E's first school experience so great. He loves you and is having a great time.  We want you to know how much we appreciate you teaching him and loving on him for us!(from a parent after the first several weeks of school)"      

"Thank you for being a part of Natalie's strong foundation! I have no doubt that what she experienced at CCDC will stay with her throughout her life."

"I wanted to let you know what a great job you did and that you met your goal! Before school let out we talked about summer and our son recalled that last summer he took a soccer and swim class. He said "I liked soccer, but it made me tired. I liked swimming, but I don't like to get wet. I like school, I want to go back to school." Talk about a success story! From tears every 5 minutes to loving school. I just hope we can find as good of a school with such great teachers as we did with CCDC."                 

"You have TRULY been amazing in educating our son this year!!! He dearly loves his teachers. He has learned SO much and we are just blown away!  We crack up with so many things he comes home and "teaches" us meaning, he uses this serious voice and inflection as you would... So cute!! He even holds books out like you do to "read" them to us. He also puts his hands up and then immediately behind his back and then he "calls on" one of us in his serious voice...too funny!!!  Seriously though, that activity has given him such desire to count and to add the numbers on both hands...wow!! He really has learned a lot this year in so many areas and we are SO grateful to you for that!! Thank you so much for all you do to encourage and teach him. It really has been impactful!!"

"I want to take a few minutes to brag about our daughter. Her progress in kindergarten is incredible. Just this week she was put in a special reading group and started reading "The Littles" by John Peterson (guided reading level M, 4.1 grade level). She continues to be such a confident reader and Charlie and I certainly have you to thank for that. Due to her strength in reading, she has also excelled in all other academic subjects."

"Your gift for creating a loving and supportive environment for learning has set a STRONG foundation for her. Your talents are phenomenal! She still uses the tools you gave her and expresses them out loud "oh yeah, Ms. --- says I need to point to the words, let me read that again", "oh, Ms. --- taught me to take a breath at the end of that period (or comma)". Not one week goes by where she doesn't mention your name. Not. One. Week!
You are thought about often in the McDonald home and we are so thankful for you. We will never forget how special and talented you are and what a positive impact you have had on, not only our daughter, but our whole family. The talents of the entire school is not lost on us. We appreciate the influence ALL of her teachers at CCDC have had in building that foundation for learning. Again, we are forever grateful! Thank you so much and you BETTER still be there when Cooper is ready to start preschool."

"Bella has been so happy since starting at CCDC... And already learned so many new things, she is singing constantly at home... I am so glad to see her happy, makes me wonder what was happening at her old school to see such a dramatic change so fast..."

"I was absolutely amazed at E's evaluation. Wow! I had no idea so many areas could possibly be assessed.  What a fantastic job you all are doing! I knew your job required lots of work, especially since I taught school for so many years, but I never thought about it beingso comprehensive. Thank you so much for all you are doing with and for E and all of the children in the class."

"We enjoyed reading over the assessment and seeing where our sweet girl is and where we can help her.  Thank you for all your hard work in doing those and also in working with her every week. She has learned SO MUCH this year already and just loves school!"  

"This school offers carline drop off for all ages and carline pickup for carpools (one or more families). CCDC also coordinates entry into the Coppell Christmas Parade. CCDC also provides services like notary, faxing, buy a lunch (in case you forgot), and shopping around Christmas time to help busy parents! This is great!!!"

"I believe that CCDC is one of the best schools (if not the best) in the area. They have a wide variety of activities for the children. I was totally surprised that at 2 years old the were beginning to teach them how to use a computer. They expose children to so many different experiences such as science, separate classes for physical education, chapel with stories, singing and dancing, science classes, etc. They also try to make things easier for the parents. In addition to the regular school day which is from 8:45 - 2:00, if on occasion you need child care later in the day, they can stay in the star care program. The Star Care program is an additional after school program lasting until 3:30 (I think) for only an additional $10 a day. Also, if ever needed for an emergency, they will allow your child to attend on days in addition to his regular classes days for a charge - $40 a day. CCDC is a little more expensive than other church based Mother's Day Out or Pre-School programs, but I do think it is worth it!"
