Welcome to CCS!

At Clayton Community School we encourage the full participation of the children to meet their social, educational, and recreational needs. Our center provides a stimulating choice of supervised activities to help children experience new situations and explore their maximum potentials for learning and growth. We are a non-profit childcare that was originally established in 1978 and we have continued since our founding to meet the growing childcare and preschool needs of the developing Community of Clayton. We are conveniently located on the campus of Mt. Diablo Elementary School.


  • To provide a physically and emotionally safe environment for all children.

  • To establish an atmosphere of respect for oneself, for the rights of others, and for equipment and property.
  • To help children improve their self-esteem and self control through personal, social, and intellectual growth.
  • To guide children in learning and practicing conflict resolution by providing them with appropriate ways to explore anger, so they can problem-solve in positive ways.
  • To establish an organized routine and a standardized behavior pattern for our center.
  • To provide an environment where the children can express their enthusiasm for learning through creative exploration and constructive play activities in areas such as art, drama, science, music, games, and movement.
