South County Prek Cooperative
SCPC Education Goals Welcome! At The South County Pre-Kindergarten Co-op, we believe that a child’s work is their play. Young children learn best by doing. Learning isn’t just repeating what someone else says; it requires active thinking and experimenting on the part of the child. Children need to manipulate blocks, try on the dress-ups, interact with each other, squish Play-Doh, finger paint, cut-and-paste, and try a variety of other activities to be a successful learner. Play provides the foundation for the rest of their learning. Please review Our Program to learn how the developmental and educational environment at SCPC has been specifically designed to meet these goals. SCPC Mission The South County Pre-Kindergarten Co-op is an organization made up of parents and teachers providing their children with quality child care and education at a reasonable cost.
