Our Coaches are enthusiastic about developing each child's unique skills.  They genuinely care about children and have the sensitivity and knowledge to understand a child’s individual developmental needs.

Each child will have exposure to a variety of Coaches to help build generalization and broaden their experiences through each Coach unique talents.  The BCBA is actively engaged in your child's daily program and in program design.  As a previous preschool teacher, this helps to ensure that they are growing and developing  at their pace and needs. 

The main classroom is  designed and supplied with a range of materials to provoke children’s questions, ideas, socialization and exploration.   Our Centers Rooms are large 10x10 rooms which  allow for more individualized learning and smaller group interactions with each room having a different activity or experience.  As part of the Centers rotation is a specific time to work on their individual targets  and needs. Our curriculum is divided into an evidence based curriculum and individualized assessments to develop your child's program. 

 

We consider parents to be our partners and family.  We value daily two-way communication with  weekly parent coaching and development in our parent trainings with the BCBA, pictures/video sent home and daily communication.  We make sure you know what skills your child is working on, how they’re progressing, what they are loving most…even whether they ate all their lunch! This makes it easy for you to let us know your child’s needs and preferences.
