Early Childhood

Early childhood is a critical time for a child’s development.  It is during this period that we learn how to relate to the people around us, develop gross and fine motor skills, and come to understand how to interact with the world.

The goal of our Early Childhood program is to help parents or caregivers give their young children the support and stimulation they need.

The three main programs we offer to children are:

  • Early Intervention Program. This family-centered program is for children who have or are at risk for developmental disability or delays.  We work directly with the children to decrease the impact of developmental delays or disabilities.  We work with their family members to improve communication, address challenges, provide specialized services and therapies, and link families to other specialized services they may need.
  • Respite. We provide temporary relief to parents or other family members who are caring for children with developmental disabilities or delays, so that they can rest, take a break or even just run errands.
  • Child Care Center.  Our 4-star child care center in Valencia County is open to children ages six weeks to 5 years, and offers a stimulating curriculum to help children develop the skills they need.
