About Us

 

Little Dippers Learning Center is owned and operated by Skagway Child Care Council, Inc. (SCCC), a local 501(c)3 non-profit and has been in operation since 1987. From May - September we offer a two-session, well‐balanced program of planned activities, which integrate art, music, and language experiences, science, math, social studies, and physical education for children ages 1 - 12 years old. Each day professional staff will guide the children through intellectual, emotional, social and physical growth with opportunities to play and freedom to explore. Little Dippers Learning Center fosters an environment of respect and friendship.

Program Philosophy and Goals

 

Little Dippers Learning Center follows a developmentally appropriate learning philosophy. We believe that children progress through different stages of development at different times. In order to meet the varied needs of the children, our environment is structured to allow children to make stage‐appropriate choices and master skills at their own pace.
