Early childhood center admissions
give your child the best
Modeled on the Reggio Emilia philosophy, the Early Childhood Center (ECC) offers an approach closely aligned with SCH Academy's educational mission in the Lower, Middle, and Upper Schools.
The year-round preschool program is directed by experienced educator and dedicated SCH teacher Janet Giovinazzo. With a master's in education from Temple University and a combined 43 years in education, Janet ensures that all ECC classrooms are designed to support our youngest learners' comfort, creativity, and joyful exploration.
The ECC has remained open for the summer of 2020 and plans to remain open for the academic year 2020-2021. Learn more about our ECC schedule & rates.
