Thank you for your interest in the SCS Nursery/Early Preschool Education! We count it an honor that you would entrust your children to our care! 

The SCS Nursery/Daycare began as a benefit for faculty and staff, and when space allows, is open to the community. We serve babies and toddlers through age 3.

* This year there is also a pre-k3 option for those 3 by September 1 and potty-trained, which is part of our regular preschool, available 8-2:45 p.m. That is a different calendar and tuition structure. See here for more information.

When children are 4 by September 1, potty-trained and developmentally ready, they can progress through our preschool, beginning in August with K4, and stay at SCS through high school graduation!

We keep staff to child ratios small (1:5 for babies and toddlers and 1:9 for 2 1/2 - 3 year olds) and our staff takes wonderful care of their babies and toddlers, while teaching them from an age-appropriate curriculum, loving them, encouraging development and independence and sharing God's word with them daily. Director is Cindy Ferson.

Early Preschool Classes are currently full through the 2018-19 school year and we are taking names for the waiting list. 


For those interested, specific information is below. 

For questions about the nursery or to add your name to the waiting list, email Didi Vardaman at or call the SCS office at 256-767-7070.
