SACC offers a competency based training program, allowing staff to participate in a variety of professional development opportunities throughout the year.
SACC staff creates a safe and welcoming environment and provide an exceptional program that contributes to the goals and priorities families have for their children, such as building self-confidence, developing friendships, having fun, and participating in physical activity. SACC staff also support the FCPS Program of Studies by providing a wide range of opportunities for children to expand their interests, develop their talents, and enhance their learning.
All SACC centers provide opportunities for children to participate in community service projects. Through these projects children in SACC develop an awareness of the needs of others and connections to both local and global communities. Specific service projects of each center are often guided by current events, the interests of the children or the staff, partnerships with organizations servicing individuals and families in need in the local community and the needs of global communities.
