Overall we are pleased with SPCC. Our daughter loves her friends and enjoys learning. Last year our experience was spectacular. Her teachers were loving and it was apparent they thoroughly enjoyed working with children. This year it seems the lead teacher in her room doesn't care. She is always sitting and kids seen to frequently be in time out. We have witnessed children being sent to time out and no discussion is had as to why or what behaviors would be more appropriate. We have never taught young children but as parents of young kids we believe time out is only effective when a lesson is learned. If a child does not know what they did wrong they can't fix it. It would be nice if a quick daily report was sent home to indicate how their day was and/or if there was a problem. Several of our friends, have this at their centers and say it's been helpful so they can reinforce positive behaviors and address negative ones. Relying on a 2-5 year old to communicate this isn't logical. While this year has not been ideal, we know that the teachers next year are outstanding and we are grateful for the assistant director Sue and other staff members who are enthusiastic educators.

SPCC is a wonderful school. Mrs. Jane is one of the most caring and wonderful teacher I have had the pleasure to deal with. The education your child will recieve from this school is stellar. They always have fun activities for the children for all of the holidays. The only negative I could say is the school is a little old and could use some updating.

My husband and I transitioned our son from a home-base childcare to Severna Park Children's Centre when he was two. He has already learned so much since being there. The teachers give great feedback to us everyday and encourage the childrens development. We love Severna Park Children's Centre!

I would highly recommend this school to anyone!! I enrolled my son in their half day Pre-K program to prepare him for full day Kindergarten the following year and the entire experience has been incredible for him. He is excited to go to school and is learning so much, socially and academically. The staff are wonderful and care about each child individually! This school has been a very positive influence on my son and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to any parent!

SPCC is a wonderful, nurturing facility. The staff is warm and caring. My 9yr old son loved going there. Now, my daughter is enrolled and she is excited each time to go to school to learn and see her friends. Even my nephew who will be 20 soon, was enrolled way back when. Some of the same staff is still there from when he went. That says a lot. I would highly recommend Severna Park Children's Centre!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
