Week of the Young Child: April 16-20
St Elizabeth Educational Day-Out Services is a non-profit organization sponsored by St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church. The program began in 1991 with the vision of two mothers, Laura Knapp and Debbie Reinhardt. St. Elizabeths Educational Day-out Services, S.E.E.D.S, was the name chosen to represent this school because these mothers believe in the educational value of early childhood.
A seed was planted, and a staff consisting of a director, assistant director, 8 teachers and 2 assistants opened S.E.E.D.S in autumn of 1991 to 80 children. Currrently, S.E.E.D.S staff consists of 35 staff members and approximately 230 children. Through the many years of service, S.E.E.D.S has continued to grow and fulfill a need in the parish and community for a quality child care center.
Our Mission Statement
S.E.E.D.S mission is to provide a Christian, nuturing community in which young children discover God, themselves, and others in their environment. The program offers a balance of spiritual, intellectual, physical, social and emotional elements guided by a committed staff whose primary interest is the child.
S.E.E.D.S strives to provide a developmentally appropriate program for children ages 21 months through 5 years that is sponsored by St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church.
S.E.E.D.S provides a loving Christian environment where pre-school children are encouraged to actively participate in creative, learning experiences. We provide opportunities to stimulate their natural curiosity and imagination. Our goal is to foster developmentally appropriate independence for each child. We work together with families to provide a positive, loving environment to help each child develop into a physically and mentally healthy individual.
