Creative Center for Young Children (CCYC)
Des Moines’ only fine arts focused preschool and child care center – located in the historic downtown First United Methodist Church. We’ll introduce your child to artists – including visual artists, poets, musicians, and dancers – at an age appropriate level, allowing him/her to experience and experiment with a variety of art genres.
At CCYC, we don’t just want to meet state and national best practice standards, we want to exceed them – that’s why we staff an additional teacher in each classroom to maximize one-on-one interactions with your child.
We approach every day with imagination, innovation, and most of all, fun! To learn more about our program please visit our curriculum page.
