Mission Statement 

Our Mission is to provide:

  • High quality care for the children of students and staff at SOU, as well as children in the community.
  • A staff of trained professionals that provide a healthy, nurturing, supportive, and developmentally appropriate early childhood care and education program enveloping the total well-being of the children and their families 
  • Opportunities for SOU students for practicum, research, and work experience in the field of Early Childhood.


At SCC we provide "experiential hands-on" developmentally appropriate learning, rich in discovery and exploration.  Our belief is that learning takes place through child initiated and child directed activities that are creative and fun.  Our curriculum and environment are a result of careful observation and planning by our professional early childhood staff.

Students, faculty and staff can utilize this servi
