School-Based Learning Opportunities

 

The Early Childhood Learning Centers in Huntington, Medford, and Ronkonkoma offer a variety of preschool classes. We achieve a remarkable 88% placement rate of students into their home school district by kindergarten. 

 

Our team members prepare children for a successful kindergarten experience by providing superior educational services and therapies for those children who show a developmental delay in cognition, social language, or emotional development. We utilize Activity-Based Intervention, discrete trial instruction, and incidental teaching in a variety of classroom settings.  

 

Early Childhood Learning Centers collaborate with Head Start and local school districts for the provision of Universal Prekindergarten programs.

 

Preschool classes provide a stimulating, educational atmosphere where three- to five-year-old children develop friendships and skills in preparation for kindergarten.

 

The Center for Autism supports all children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) across all Early Childhood Learning Centers and is committed to providing state-of-the-art, empirically based teaching methodologies to help children gain the skills necessary to be successful in their home, community, and school settings.
