Welcome to Sanford Education Center!

Following the "Cradle to Career" approach the Montevideo School District has adopted, Sanford is the place where it all begins.  Reopening in 2011 as an Early Childhood Center, Sanford is home to a variety of programs offering choice to parents of children ages 6 weeks to 6th grade.

Starting as early as 6 weeks of age the Thunder Hawk Care program offers childcare via two options : 1) Little Thunder Hawks(LTH) provides child care for children ages 6 weeks to 5 yrs of age and 2) Junior Thunder Hawks(JTH) offers School Age Care before and after school as well as non-school days for children ages Kindergarten-6th grade.

Also the site of pre-school options for children ages 3-5 Sanford is the home of Small World Nursery School(SWNS), Head Start, and Little Thunder Hawks(LTH)

Additional programs housed in the Sanford building include Early Childhood Special Education(ECSE), Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Early Childhood Family Education(ECFE), and the Community Education offices.
