Welcome to CSCC
The Charlotte Sharp Children’s Center (CSCC) has been recognized as a model of preschool excellence that provides high quality childcare and early educational programming for children ages 2-6 years. CSCC offers a safe and supportive social and emotional environment that includes meaningful adult- and child-directed experiences children and adults.
In April 2021, the preschool was named the to honor Charlotte Han Sharp, the deceased wife of Texas A&M University Chancellor John Sharp. Charlotte was a passionate advocate for high quality childcare and early learning experiences that develop strong foundational skills for school readiness and achievement.
CSCC is part of the Texas A&M University System (TAMU) and will become part of a larger TAMU project called the Intergenerational Learning Center (ILC), a cumulative and preventative care model for improving the health and well-being of young children and senior adults ages 55 years and older. The project is a vision of Chancellor John Sharp and the TAMU Board of Regents.
CSCC serves multiple purposes. It provides childcare and preschool for children ages 2-6 years and it is designed to provide onsite, real-time parent and educator professional development for persons working with young children. CSCC is well-known for its safe, orderly classroom management routines that help children develop as competent and confident learners.
CSCC and the International Learning Center will include collaborative partnerships that seek ways to enhance health and educational opportunities for all ages. CSCC and ILC will provide childcare, senior living, family support, and community collaboration. Research will be conducted along with professional development to enhance our knowledge and skills for working with young children and adults.
