South County Pre-Kindergarten Co-op, Inc. (SCPC) is a non-profit tax-exempt corporation
which began in 1974. The school is accredited by the Maryland Department of Education and
meets all the requirements for a non-public nursery school.
As a cooperative, we are a corporation owned by its members. Our only paid staff consists of
one teacher and one teacher aide for each class, who are hired by the membership. All
administrative functions of the Co-op are performed by the members on a voluntary basis. Our
Board of Directors consists of seven elected positions and six members appointed by the
President. It is the Boards duty to conduct and manage the business and property of the
corporation accordingly. The Board meets each month.
The Co-op is located at the Davidsonville Family Recreation Center (DFRC). This site was
formerly a Nike Base; however, the DFRC has a concession agreement with the Anne Arundel
County Department of Recreation and Parks for the sole use of the facility. The Co-op subleases
its building from the DFRC.
The DFRC is also incorporated and operated by a Board of Directors comprised of delegates
from each member organization of which we are one. Other member organizations of DFRC
include: the Boy Scouts; Girl Scouts; Radio Club; Dance Club; Davidsonville Athletic
Association (DAA); Canine Training Associates; Free State Fly Fishers; and the Davidsonville
Area Civic Association (DACA).
As a member of the DFRC, we are obligated to participate in their fundraisers and other special
activities. SCPC could not exist without the DFRC and it is to our benefit to see that it is

At SCPC, our program is concerned with the total development of your childtheir social,
emotional and intellectual growth and their physical development. Above all, we want your
child to enjoy their first school experience. Each child should gain such a positive feeling about
school that they will eagerly anticipate their start in kindergarten. It is not just the learning that
is important, but the love of learning that will help them through their school years.
At SCPC, we believe that a childs play is their work. Young children learn best by doing.
Learning requires active thinking and experimenting on the part of the child. Children need to
manipulate blocks, try on dress-ups, interact with each other, squish play-doh, finger paint, cut
and paste and try a variety of activities to be a successful learner. Play provides the foundation
for the rest of their learning.
At SCPC, your child will be exposed to a large variety of play and learning experiences. Some
are easily recognizable and will have tangible benefits; others are less obvious. We think all of
the activities we offer are valuable. We want every child to have opportunities to explore and
learn in a relaxed but stimulating environment without feeling any pressure from adults or peers.
We recognize that each child will benefit from their experiences in varying degrees depending
upon their developmental level, their readiness and their interest.
At SCPC, we also want your childs first regular separation from parents and family to be a
happy one. We want them to feel secure and to learn that they can trust their teachers and the
other adults they will meet at school. We want each child to gain self-confidence and feel proud
of their accomplishments.
At SCPC, we also believe that parents are an integral part of their childs learning experience.
You have an opportunity to participate in the classroom on a regular basis and observe first hand
the learning that takes place. This creates a rewarding preschool experience for both you and
