Children's Services

"

SCO helps get children off to a healthy start with programs starting even before birth and continuing through the school years and beyond.  Our goal is to foster healthy development, reinforce family bonds, and provide access to academic programming that lays the foundation for a stronger tomorrow.

Our continuum of early childhood programming helps parents to foster early literacy, healthy development and a love of learning with their little ones. Working with families, our goal is to ensure that children enter school prepared to excel.

For school aged children, we offer recreation, academic enrichment, and opportunities for leadership development in our after-school, weekend, and summer camp programs.  Working parents appreciate the extended hours, knowing that their children are well taken care of in a safe and engaging environment.
