School Age Child Care
SACC Mission Statement
To fulfill the need for child care in a geographic area, while providing quality day care for the children as a service to their parents and the community.
The philosophy of the Lampeter-Strasburg School-Age Child Care program is based upon the individual and developmental needs of the children it will serve, namely children in kindergarten through grade five. The program reflects the school district's belief in a strong sense of community that is dedicated to nurturing children, providing for individual differences among them, and understanding that the rate of change among children varies greatly during the early school years.
Lampeter-Strasburg's School-Age Child Care program provides a "Home-Away-From-Home" environment that allows children opportunities for self-selected activities, large and small muscle activities, and experiences that will foster positive independence and cooperation. The staff includes child-oriented adults who adhere to the same philosophy. Each staff member will provide a safe, secure, and happy environment for the children.
We believe that these young members of the Lampeter-Strasburg family are deserving of the very best opportunities to develop and grow in an enriching and non-threatening setting. The L-S School-Age Child Care program is built upon what is best for our fragile and precious children.
