Early Intervention

After School Program

     Group mentorship is provided through these after school programs that take place Monday through Thursday from 3:30 – 5:30 Pm. Children are exposed to a variety of programs that foster self-esteem, access to community programs and services and cultural teachings on various days. Elders are brought in for storytelling, cultural teachings and general sharing of talents. It is our belief that these after school programs will provide a basis for fostering self-esteem, self-confidence and resiliency, especially in the school setting. Our objective for this program is to increase social competency, thus decreasing anti-social behaviors. This program is geared towards children ages 6-12 years of age.

Parents and Children Together (PACT) 

     These programs are geared to families with children ages 0-5 years

of age. Various parenting and play programs are offered in a learner

directed approach that focuses on promotion of parental involvement,

safety, traditional parenting techniques and supportive environments of

parents with their young children. Parents find support while children

meet new friends.

Pre-Natal Program

                            The prenatal program is offered in a series of 6 classes that will take you through the                                            whole experience of pregnancy and the early weeks of parenthood. A range of                                               topics such as healthy pregnancy, preterm labor and low birth weight, breast                                                feeding, preparation for parenting, caring for a newborn and infant safety. The                                               participants are provided with a healthy snack and an incentive upon completion                                          of the prenatal classes.

The summer program planning and activities are planned around the Circle of Courage Model four quadrants: Belonging, Mastery, Independence, and Generosity.
