At SPCC, families find a community of teachers and faculty to support them in their parenting journeys, a supportive community of other families to connect with, and a place to collaborate and advocate for children. Children find a place where their ideas are deemed worthy of exploration, where their learning is play-based and their environment is cultivated with intention, with provocations to stimulate curiosity as teachers collaborate to scaffold learning. Social justice, inclusion and anti-bias education are integral component’s of SPCC’s vision and mission. We firmly believe every child deserves to experience the wonders of their first years in a loving, engaging environment, surrounded by nurturing, educated professionals who will scaffold learning experiences, support and educate families, and help recognize when early interventions are necessary. 

SPCC has been serving the community for over 47 years and has served over 4,000 families and children. An important part of SPCC’s mission is to break down the barriers families face in seeking high-quality early childhood education and promote access  for all families and children. One of the ways SPCC does this is by providing scholarships for low-income families. 

SPCC must raise funds annually in order to sustain our scholarship program. SPCC is holding it’s largest fundraiser to-date, this spring! The 2018 Breaking Barriers with Beers Fundraiser will be held on Sunday, May 20th at BlackStack Brewing, from 2-5pm. Our event will help raise funds to directly support SPCC's scholarship program. Our goal is to raise $10,000.00. There will be appetizers, games and prizes! Join us in supporting scholarships for early learning and enjoy a local brew!  

With your help we can continue to promote access to high-quality early childhood education which will have lifelong positive implications for children and the community, including lower rates of incarceration, lower rates of adolescent pregnancy, increased high school graduation rates, higher achievement in math and literacy, lower numbers of children struggling with challenging behaviors, greater success in cultivating healthy personal relationships, and higher levels of job satisfaction as adults. 

On behalf of SPCC’s 2018 Breaking Barriers Fundraising Committee, thank you for your support!
