The mission of Civitan Services' Preschool program is to help children advance to their full potential in all areas of development in preparation for entrance into the public school system. Our program focuses on the academic and social education of children with diverse backgrounds, delays and disabilities. Curriculums are uniquely designed for each skill level. Upon enrollment, each child is evaluated and an IFSP/IPP is developed with family members and instructors to meet the unique needs of the child. We offer skill development and therapies in the following areas:

  • Educational Services
  • Gross Motor Skills
  • Fine Motor Skills
  • Adaptive (Self-Help) Skills
  • Social Skills
  • Handwriting Without Tears Program
  • Kindergarten Readiness Skills
  • Emotional Skills
  • Communication Skills
  • Cognitive (Pre-Academic) Skills
  • Physical Therapy
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Speech Therapy

Civitan Services' preschool teachers and licensed therapists possess some of the highest credentials in their field and are well equipped to meet the daily educational, physical, psychological and emotional needs of the children placed in their care.

Our staff is intimately familiar with each child and their specific needs, and continuously exceeds expectations to ensure that those needs are being met. We develop partnerships with families to establish and evaluate program planning and implementation and encourage family participation in the growth and development of their child.

For children with special health care needs, The Civitan Preschool has an on-staff registered nurse that establishes specific care plans, presents staff training, healthcare and med management as well as conducts regular quality control assessments to ensure that medical plans are being followed correctly.

Civitan Services' Preschool program is a safe, clean and positive environment where each child is loved and receives daily individual attention, understanding and encouragement. We offer:

  • Transportation
  • Nutritional Meals and Snacks
  • Safe and Age Appropriate Classroom Toys
  • Modern Playground Equipment
  • Low Child to Teacher Ratios
