Sandhills Children’s Center is a non-profit inclusive early learning center for children.  The mission is to provide services of the highest quality for children with and without special developmental needs, ages birth through five.  Infant, toddler, and preschool classrooms prepare children for kindergarten with a curriculum that provides a strong foundation.  The first five years of a child’s life are fundamentally important. They are the foundation that shapes children’s future health, happiness, growth, development and learning achievement at school, in the family and community, and in life in general.  Babies and young children grow, learn and develop rapidly when they receive attention, encouragement, mental stimulation, and nutritious meals.  Sandhills Children’s Center provides a quality education to help ALL children develop their skills and realize their dreams.
