Welcome to the website for the
Camp Curtin Community Preschool!

In response to the need for an early learning program in the Uptown Harrisburg community, the Camp Curtin Community Neighbors United (CCCNU) with Covenant Community Corporation acting as its fiscal agent began the Camp Curtin Community Preschool in February of 2015 as a proto-type effort. Beginning August 18, 2015 we resumed a full year program for 3 year olds. We operate a 2½ hour program in the morning three days a week.

Camp Curtin Community Preschool is also supported by several churches and other organizations in the Uptown Harrisburg Camp Curtin neighborhood, as well as individual neighbors and friends. We have garnered support to the point of having a classroom and supplies adequate to begin. We operate with a paid head teacher and volunteer teacher aides. Camp Curtin Community Preschool currently operates out of the Camp Curtin Memorial-Mitchell United Methodist Church located at 2221 N 6th St, Harrisburg, PA 17110. We are also working closely with the Harrisburg Area Community College Early Childhood Education Program to ensure high quality educational alignment and attainment.

Current Hours: 9:00am to 11:30am on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday

Our Goals

Mission Statement

Our mission is to address the need for an early learning program in the Uptown Harrisburg community by offering a quality, caring and safe preschool to 3 and 4 year olds at reduced or no charge.

[pivot_text title=”Family Involvement” icon=””]One of our most important goals is to involve the children’s families. Parents and guardians are encouraged to participate in our daily activities, special events, and field trips. If you are interested in joining us, please ask the teacher for more information!

[pivot_text title=”Kindergarten Readiness” icon=””]To ease the transition into kindergarten, our daily activities are designed to emphasize academic and social development. The children enjoy hands-on experiences promoting the development of math, literacy, science, and art skills. Our lesson plans also teach the children pro-social skills while helping them establish a positive self-esteem.[/pivot_text]
[pivot_text title=”Caring for Your Community” icon=””]We also want every child to develop a sense of pride for their community. To that end, we have integrated the importance of recycling and protecting the environment into our daily activities. We encourage our children to use what they have learned both in and out of the school and through positive reinforcement, the children learn that their actions play an important role in keeping the Camp Curtin neighborhood beautiful.[/pivot_text]
