Therapeutic Early Childhood Classrooms

Family Tree offers a Therapeutic Early Childhood Classroom program, characterized by a positive, child-centered approach that helps children heal from traumatic or abusive experiences.

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-one-one support in a context of fun, developmentally appropriate learning activities.

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.
