    Why did you think it was important for your child to attend CCK?

    CCK offered a great alternative to the “babysitting” services otherwise available in 1975 when I help found the Center.

    What do you think sets CCK apart from other early childhood programs?

    CCK offers a high quality child development program conducted by a well-trained and experienced staff rather than babysitting services provided by caregivers typically lacking any formal child care credentials.

    How does the staff involve the parents of their “students?”

    Center staff interacted with my wife and I on a daily basis and kept us fully apprised of our children’s progress or any issues affecting that progress. The staff was always eager to respond to any questions we might have concerning Lee’s or Cara’s development and any health or other issues.

    What are the two or three most important things they gained from attending?

    Our children –first our son, Lee, then later our daughter, Cara – received excellent developmental training provided by a professionally trained, experienced and dedicated CCK staff rather than mere babysitting services. Also, the operational hours and days of the Center were very convenient.

    Tell me about the staff and their interaction with the children?

    The Center has a history of hiring and retaining staff skilled at interacting with young children in a way that promotes their developmental maturity and self esteem.

    What would you say to parents who are considering enrolling their child at CCK?

    You will not find a finer child development facility anywhere in the Knoxville region. When you drop your child at the Center you will leave knowing that he or she will be actively involved in a program aimed at developing desirable life skills taught by dedicated and experienced teachers, half of whom have earned a college degrees in the field of early child development.
