It can be hard to think about sending your preschooler to school when he or she has a developmental delay or disability.

Our team will listen to what you want when they create a program to support your child’s learning. Your ongoing involvement in the program is important to us and essential to your child’s success. Every child will receive programming that is best suited to their abilities and needs. Together we can support your child in their learning and development.

EASE is our specialized preschool program for children with severe delays or disabilities. We focus on your child’s individual strengths and needs to build a solid foundation in this crucial stage of their development. Your family will feel engaged and supported as staff guide your child’s learning.

Our classroom staff will adapt activities and materials so that your child can learn in his or her most effective way.
The therapy team is on site to respond to your child’s needs.
Your child will be given assistance by one of our Child Development Facilitators (CDF).
Our specialized program includes application systems in the classrooms, a fully equipped therapeutic preschool gym, a sensory (Snoezelen) space, calming rooms and small group spaces
