About the Provider

Description: SCDC strives to provide consistent environments in which children can discover their own capabilities and creativity. Children are encouraged to develop self-discipline and a respect for others. We maintain a nonsexist, non-racist setting for children's learning. We believe it is important to enhance the development of a positive self-image in each child. We accomplish this by providing warmth and nurturing in a growth-facilitating environment rich with opportunities to learn and discover.
Our goal is to provide parents with an open, welcoming atmosphere to encourage and promote parent involvement and parent peace of mind. We work to develop a one-to-one relationship with each child and parent, communicating to the child that they are "cared about" as well as "cared for". We accomplish this by providing the best suited staff; qualified and dedicated to understanding the needs of the children and families.
Further, we seek to extend the children's environment beyond the classroom and into the community.
We are committed to advocating for all children, reaching out into the community and the state to advocate for high quality care for all families.
It is the policy of Salem Child Development Center that no person shall be discriminated against by reason of race, color, religion, disability, sex, age or national origin. SCDC accepts all children that are able to function within staff ratio and within the environments we maintain.
