In existence since 1977, it is one of the longest running afterschools in the country.


Mission Statement: The staff of Countryside Children's Center is dedicated to ensuring a safe, nurturing environment for our children. We pride ourselves in meeting each child's social, intellectual, physical and emotional needs through a great variety of play and social interaction. We join ranks with Countryside Elementary School to offer a blended day of learning while supporting each family by providing a comforting home away from home. All of us at CCC are proud to be a family, servicing more than 150 adorable children. It doesn't get any better than that!
