Studies have shown that children attending a high standard early childhood program achieve higher academic scores, become more well rounded, and are more successful in their future careers.

The curriculum at MCCA employs a range of developmentally appropriate practice. Our curriculum is aligned with New Jersey Preschool Expectations and Standards. This will ensure a smooth transition and readiness for Kindergarten/ First Grade and their future education. In addition we also utilize the Creative Curriculum and Project Based approaches. This means that children are not only meeting the expectations in the eyes of the state, they are also learning through imagination and creativity that is encouraged from multiple approaches.
