Our early childhood education and care program serves children from birth to 5 years. Our preschool and drop-in day care centers nurture the healthy development and early education of young children.
We work closely with parents to develop a toolkit of skills and knowledge to reduce the chances of repeating behaviors that hamper their child’s healthy development, and, ultimately help them overcome the obstacles they face in their own health and success.
We bring our considerable expertise in mental health into the classroom, and into homes where the impact of trauma is pervasive.
