A leader in early childhood education since 1934!

Our Preschool and Kindergarten programs provide children the opportunity to learn through play and through the arts, which nurtures their intellectual and their creative development.  Our exceptional staff works to build trusting relationships with every child; It is through these early relationships that children learn to think, understand, communicate, express emotions, and to develop their social skills.

We invite you to join our SLC family.  Financial Assistance is available to ensure equal access for all.

For the Littles!

Toddler Time is for you and your little to play and learn together.
Little Explorers is a one day drop-off program for 2 & 3 year olds
