A Little History

Atascadero Children's Center was originally founded in 1989 under the name of Cabbage Patch Preschool. In 2000, the property was purchased, a new name change of Atascadero Children's Center to include all ages, and adding two additional buildings serving ages birth to 6th grade. ACC became incorporated in 2005. A remodel in 2008 to add more space, upgrade classrooms and bathrooms has been completed and a change to now serving ages 18 months to 5th grade is now in place. We are always improving; playgrounds are next!

ACC Philosophy

Atascadero Children's Center was established to provide a nurturing environment that is safe and secure in which all children are filled with a sense of belonging. We believe all children have the right to quality care and education. We are committed to assisting, encouraging, and supporting children in the efforts to become self-sufficient, independent, have a positive self-esteem and self-image. Atascadero Children's Center believes one of a child's most valuable experiences in the development of self, is play. Through play children are provided with the opportunities to actively explore and interact with others to add to their understanding of the world. They are encouraged to investigate, create and discover. Our focus is to provide fulfilling early childcare and educational experiences enhancing each child's social/emotional, cognitive and physical development. Above all, we encourage a strong partnership between home and school.

ACC Staff

We know you want the BEST for your child. We have the same goal of providing you and your child with a quality program, which means we must have a quality staff. Each teacher and all associated staff have been fingerprinted and cleared prior to working at ACC. The teachers must meet all the Community Care Licensing regulations and be CPR certified. ACC is a safe and nurturing environment where the teachers are friendly, love children and provide the best learning environment for each individual child.
