In an atmosphere of warmth and enthusiasm, the Special Needs Department offers a variety of programs, a caring and experienced staff, and a nurturing environment for children 2 years 6 months-5 years of age. The programs best serve children who have delays in communication, motor and/or social development. Every child is encouraged to explore, experiment, create, and progress at a rate comfortable for her/him. We foster the development of positive self-esteem and help promote independence using hands-on activities. There is special emphasis on development of language, fine and gross motor skills, social interaction and self-help abilities. The “Toward Tomorrow Pre-School Program” is licensed by the New York State Department of Education.

Evaluations

Do you have concerns about your child’s development? We can help!  Parents may request an evaluation through their school district.

We provide you and your school district with written reports and attend scheduled CPSE meetings with you to determine what services, if any, your child is eligible to receive.
