Early Childhood Center

The most critical years of your child’s development occur during the first five years of their life. Our innovative Early Childhood Center helps to lay the foundation for lifelong learning success. We incorporate an early childhood curriculum and innovative technology into your child’s learning environment under the direction of highly qualified and licensed teachers.

Additionally, we specialize in the care of children with special health needs and/or developmental disabilities. The Early Childhood Center offers a variety of services—including physical, speech, and occupational therapies—in addition to providing customized care for children with autism. We understand that every child needs individualized care, and we develop a plan for each child based on the family's and child’s goals.

What is the Early Childhood Center like?

At our center-based preschool program, children grow in an environment rich with play-based learning activities that are designed to bring out each child’s individual strengths. Children with and without disabilities, from birth to five years old, learn and play together.

Early Head Start and Head Start

Generous funding for our Early Childhood Center is provided, in part, by the federal programs Early Head Start and Head Start. These programs promote preparing children (birth to five years old) for success at school.

As an Early Head Start and Head Start provider, we are pleased to offer comprehensive services to support the mental, social, and emotional development of children.

Head Start also provides support for families by giving parents the opportunity to participate in the Parent Partnership. This program helps parents identify and achieve their goals.
