South Rowan Academy of Child Development, LLC
Promoting overall child growth in a safe, caring, structured environment.

group of children and teacher at schoolWe aim to nurture all aspects of child development through promoting strong academic success, practicing daily health and fitness, and sharpening minds with recreational activities. South Rowan Academy of Child Development understands that school-age children spend most of their time at school dealing with their assignments, schoolmates, and extracurricular activities.

When they are not in a classroom, they unconsciously seek to explore different things that interest them most. They will crave for learning opportunities to establish vital skills for their future. In response to this need for continual learning outside the four walls of the classroom, we provide a variety of enriching activities such as indoor or outdoor sports, and seasonal crafts and projects.
