The state-of-the-art facility also offers preschool curriculum, as well as before and after school care for children in Kindergarten through grade 5.
SMELC offers field trips, meals and snacks, an enclosed outdoor playground and so much more. The staff are compassionate, experienced and truly care about and take time with each child.
