Our early childhood center-based programs serve children from 2 to 5 years of age in a therapeutic classroom setting. The children have a snack and lunch, supported playtime, group experiences and outside or gym activities.
Children come to a toddler or preschool classroom two mornings each week, experiencing many opportunities to practice social skills, express their feelings, and make their own safe choices. Individualized goals focusing on social and emotional health are developed for each child and monitored by skilled teachers, who provide nurturing one-on-one support in a context of fun, developmentally appropriate learning activities.
For the classroom programs, teachers work in partnership with families by coming to their homes at least monthly to support parents and strengthen the parent-child relationship during challenging times.
In the home-based program, children and their parents receive similar services but the classroom experience is less often (anywhere from two to four times each month).
Our teachers are passionate men and women with educational backgrounds in early intervention, early childhood education, psychology, human services and/or English as a Second Language. Our teachers have diverse experience in employment areas ranging from Preschool, K-12, Special Education and ESL teaching as well as social work and community services.
We are proud of our teachers and staff and view them as one of the most valuable resources we provide to the children and families we partner with!
