Inevitable circumstances could prompt college students and employees to bring their children at school at times. At CCDC, they are most certainly welcome!
As a response to this need, CCDC has dedicated its LRC Room (also called Reading Room) at the Elementary Department area as a special zone where children of college students are allowed to spend time reading books and playing board games while their parents attend their classes.
Moreover, the wide gymnasium just across the room gives children a safe and spacious place play.
Children are also allowed in their parent’s classroom as long as they are quiet and behaved, and will not cause distraction while the class is ongoing.
All these facilities are offered and used free of charge!
CCDC maintains a an open admission policy on addressing women’s applications, acceptance, entry, and participation at the college.
As of date, CCDC has never been involved in any complaint for denial of entry of a student based on gender or race.
