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

The SCS Daycare/Early Preschool began as a benefit for faculty and staff, and when space allows, is open to the community. We serve babies and toddlers through age 4.

We keep staff to child ratios small 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 Babs Atkins. The location is 3003 Cloverdale Road, Suites A&B (just down the road from SCS and beside Steve Pierce's State Farm agency.)

We are full for the fall semester in all classes.

 

If you are interested in an opening for your child and want to be placed on the waiting list, please call and speak to our director, Mrs. Atkins, at 256-740-3991. She may request that you return a registration form to get more information about your child and your family's needs. We would like to meet you and your child to ascertain the best fit. Once accepted for enrollment, the registration fee holds your spot until a starting date is determined.
 
Once we are full and a waiting list is formed, to be added to the waiting list, complete and return the registration forms. 

For those interested, specific information is below. 

Mission:

To provide safe and loving childcare for the faculty, staff and parents of Shoals Christian School and the Shoals community whose children are age 3 and below.

Hours of Operation:         7:30 am – 5:30 pm

Calendar of Operation:

There are some days school is out that we will keep the nursery open as a service to our parents. For the 2021-2022 calendar, click here.

Enrollment:

Priority is given first to SCS Faculty and Staff, next to SCS families whose children are enrolled in Shoals Christian, SCS Alumni, and then to families from the Shoals area.

Keep in mind that because of small classes, we cannot always promote from one class or another during the school year, so IF and when there is an opening, the age, maturity, physical development and independence of the child all has to be taken into consideration to make the best fit.
