Ronnie Smith – Parent

We are a strengths focused center and meet every child right where they are. We do this by offering small classroom size, evidence based social emotional curricula and support children on how to navigate big feelings and emotions through play, awareness, self regulation, empathy and compassion.

The Sammy Center wants to help build children up at a young age to help mitigate and/or help them move through hardships so they can be successful adolescents
and then adults. Our trauma-responsive environment supports resilience, self care, and healing.

Operating hours are

Monday through Friday 8:30am to 11:30pm and 11:30 to 2:30, (Full day sessions available)

The Sammy Center staff believes in a holistic approach and that a home-to-school model is vital for successful outcomes. Families will have access to on-site and zoom wellness offered by our Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and regular parenting workshops offered by our Professional Parent Trainer.
