Annual Classroom Transitions

  • Each May, children and their teachers transition together to the next classroom
  • The lead teacher stays with the class from the Infant room through Preschool
  • As a result, each child experiences a high level of continuity of care

No Religious Education — Why Not?

While we support and recognize the value of a Christian-based education, the CDC at Central’s mission is to serve Atlanta’s working families from all religious backgrounds.
