Early Childhood Education & School-Age Programs
Quality infant care is difficult to find for most parents. But, as the parent of a child with special needs, it is even harder. The child may have unique medical or physical needs, or may require special equipment and nursing care. For these parents quality and professional care is of the utmost importance. We accept infants from 6 weeks to 18 months.
Our Infant Care team of experts in conjunction with the family develops an individual care plan to meet your infant’s need for therapy, medications, and activity. Each infant’s daily activities enhance their individual development in all areas. Activities to stimulate the growth and development of the brain enhance the physical, social, emotional and intellectual development of each child. A safe, secure environment enables infants to bond with caregivers, learn to trust, and develop emotional intelligence that plays an important role in early development.
URS provides 5-Star Rated Early Childhood Education Programs for toddlers and preschoolers (ages 3 -5 years old). Our program uses the Creative Curriculum in our developmentally appropriate designed classrooms. Creative Curriculum assessment system called Teaching Strategies Gold, helps us individualize children’s learning so that we are able to meet the needs of those with disabilities and typically developing children.
Our center offers on-site Nursing Services and Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapies for children in our programs. We utilize specialized equipment for the inclusion of children with special needs at feeding, outside and circle times.
URS offers before and after school care for school-age children, 7 to 17 years. Our Latchkey program is the only regional program designed to meet the special needs of students with disabilities ages 12-17.
