My children are currently enrolled at SCC and have been since their births. My daughter absolutely loves it there and has learned so much from each of the programs they offer. I have found that not only are the teachers quite knowledgeable, caring, and positive but the entire school is very family oriented. The office staff are extremely helpful and have taken my thoughts and opinions seriously. They do have an open door policy and love to have families visit and even volunteer when possible. I am able to call to check on my child as much as possible and though at times I feel like I am calling too much they reassure me that it's okay they are happy to get the details of my child's day. I highly recommend the center to new families.

The center is willing to work with you to meet all of your needs and really do want to hear everyone's thoughts/opinions. As for the school lunch I must say that it is a well balanced menu. My first child is a picky eater and has a tendency to eat better at school then for us at home.

The management team has been wonderful. You can tell that they are always trying to make improvements. Let's face it no school is prefect but you can tell that SCC tries extremely hard to be one of the best!
Do not be misled by the very negative reviews if nothing else I recommend that you visit the school with your child and see for yourself all they have to offer you!!
