Child Development Center FAQs

  • Q: Do I have to enroll my child or can I just drop them off?
    A: Children must be enrolled with the Child Development Center prior to attending. We have a waiting list, and names will be accepted for the list according to the number of slots available for each age group. The Center offers limited drop-in as space allows on a daily basis.

    Q: Do you offer part-time care or hourly care?
    A: We offer limited part-time care for SCC students only. Options for part-time are Monday-Wednesday-Friday, Tuesday-Thursday, Monday-Friday morning, and Monday-Friday afternoon. We do not offer hourly care.

    Q: Do I need to take my child to a different preschool program?
