Early Childhood Learning Center at the Pennsylvania Children’s Center

Every child deserves the chance to reach their full potential.  Let us encourage, challenge and inspire your little ones to develop a love of lifelong learning today.

As part of our core program, Tamassee DAR School provides an exceptional learning experience for parents seeking a quality driven, safe and loving day care environment for their children.  Whether you are seeking preschool services or after school care, the Early Childhood Learning Center at the Pennsylvania Children’s Center (PCC) is here for you.


If you are looking for a safe, loving and quality program, then look no further.

Since 1985, PCC has been providing outstanding educational and daycare services to our local and surrounding communities.  We are centrally located on the Tamassee DAR School campus in a beautiful stone building with recent updates.   PCC is licensed by the South Carolina Department of Social Services, nationally accredited by the Council on Accreditation (COA) and an ABC Quality Center.

PCC serves infants, preschoolers, and children up to age 12 needing fulltime, before and after school services.  The Pinnacle Curriculum provides our core curriculum and is a faith based educational learning experience built around state standards to offer developmentally appropriate activities.   Low child/teacher ratios and small classroom sizes allow greater personal attention for each and every preschool child in our care.  You can rest assured that your child is receiving the best care possible by our loving and trained staff.

It is our sincere goal to make every child and parent feel that they are a natural extension of the Tamassee DAR School and PCC family.
