Serendipity Children's Center was the dream of two friends and schoolteachers in 1985.
They taught and ran the program until 1987.
Dan and Lynnette McCarty purchased Serendipity Children's Center in 1990.
At that time, licensed capacity was 63 children ages six months to age five.
Over the past years, there have been many changes and much growth, while maintaining superb quality and reputation.
The growth has been a part of the center's history.
Serendipity is currently licensed to serve 263 students ranging from ages 6 weeks to Grade 6.
Dan and Lynnette have provided continued growth by increasing space, improving the quality of curriculum, and staying current with the early care and education trends.
Their goal to insure that the children served are receiving what they need for a successful ongoing educational process.
They remain committed to providing a place of growth and development and a place where children can feel at home.
