Early Childhood Peer Model Program (Tuition Based)  

Families are invited to apply to the Peer Model Program, which allows children to learn alongside similar aged friends who have developmental delays or disabilities.

Benefits of the early childhood program for peer models include:  learning opportunities in all areas of development, vocabulary enrichment, exposure to school readiness skills, early literacy practice, development of social skills including compassion and empathy, and development of positive perceptions of children with disabilities.
