Swift Child Care Centers aspire to establish a partnership with all families in order to support the individual growth and development of each child, and to create a solid foundation on which the child may build both academically and socially.
Our mission is to provide Early Childhood Education and childcare services that prepare your child for the future.
We use an interactive approach that allows teachers to work with the children in small groups, large groups, and one-on-one.
We feel this is the best way to educate and promote the development of each individual child.

"It is my personal goal to ensure that each child, family, and staff member at SCC knows they are loved, valued, and respected.  Our individual and cultural differences create a beautiful environment where trust and acceptance are the foundation on which our relationships are built." - Joanna Varda
