Welcome to the Sewanee Children’s Center cooperative preschool program!

SCC is constituted as a parents’ cooperative and operated by parents through a Board of Directors. Parental participation is the lifeblood of the school. The Sewanee Children’s Center offers a comprehensive early learning program designed to meet the developmental needs of each child, and is responsive to the needs of local families and children.

The school opened in 1949 under the name Sewanee Nursery School and Kindergarten, Incorporated, offering morning care primarily to university faculty children. In 1967 the Board began an extensive scholarship program to offer the benefits of a preschool experience to the whole community. This diversity provided a broader cultural experience for all. In 1977, the school extended its program to provide afternoon care for preschoolers and children through second grade. In 1983 our name was changed to Sewanee Children’s Center in order to reflect our wide-ranging program. In 1997, the school extended its program to provide care through eight-year-olds. The Center is licensed by the state of Tennessee under the Department of Human Services and is a Three-Star agency–the highest rating possible. The Center is an exempt organization under section 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
