Our Special Needs Child Care Classrooms
Infant & Toddler Programs
We offer exceptional care in a safe, secure environment for infants, with or without special needs, ages 6 weeks to 18 months and toddlers ages 18 month to 36 months. Our program utilizes the Creative Curriculum, a nationally recognized educational program focused on the cognitive, physical and social development of your child.
Our child care center provides a nurturing atmosphere for your preschooler whether they have a disability or are typically-developing. We utilize the “Creative Curriculum”, Learning without Tears and the principles of “Conscious Discipline” to create an optimal learning environment for children to participate in developmentally-appropriate experiences that instill confidence and creativity. Children enjoy consistent daily structure, movement, and indoor/outdoor playtime in our state-of-the-art facility.

Before and after school child care and full-day summer camp is available for school-age children, 7 to 12 years of age. Our program utilizes the “Core Curriculum” and offers opportunities to expand your child’s knowledge of math, science, language and art. Our Latchkey program is the only regional program designed to meet the special needs of students with disabilities ages 12-17, providing a nurturing and engaging environment for social interaction and educational experiences before, during and after school.
