We want our children to be excited each and every day that they get on the school bus to come to First Children. Our goal is to ensure that each child gets back on the bus at the end of the day with that same feeling of happiness. This is our measure of success—happy children-learning and growing every day.
School is a very serious business and it takes a team of dedicated professionals and paraprofessionals to do the work of preparing, organizing, engaging and supporting. We are most fortunate at First Children to have an incredible staff who have been working with young children for many years and who absolutely love what they do.
The school program provides individual Speech, Occupational and Physical Therapy. Our therapists are provided by Children’s Specialized Hospital and are expert in the areas of child development and habilitation.
First Children School provides Preschool Classes (ages 3-5) and Primary classes (ages 5-11) for children who display developmental delays due to Autism, communication, orthopedic, learning, behavioral or medical issues. Classes are in operation 9 am-3 pm throughout the school year. We also provide a 7 week summer program.
The program is comprehensive, family-driven and designed to meet the educational, therapeutic, physical, sensory, social-emotional and communication needs of young children. We believe that young children learn best in nurturing environments that foster active participation with peers and instructional materials.
