The core of hope
CRCC’s Day Health Services are the core of its program to deliver joy, hope and health. These services provide for the medical needs of clients as well as their educational needs by complementing early intervention and the school’s efforts. CRCC’s team approach creates a partnership with families, medical professionals and school services. In addition, rehabilitation and behavioral health services are available to children attending the day program, which offers full- or part-time care for infant, toddler and preschool clients, as well as care before and after school and during school breaks for school-age clients.
Infant, toddler and preschool
CRCC’s infant, toddler and preschool programs use the Teaching Strategies Gold Educational Model, which transitions with younger children until they begin kindergarten and emphasizes an active approach to learning through play, supporting the development of trust, autonomy and initiative. This environment provides teachers and caregivers the opportunity for maximum interaction with each client. Teaching Strategies Gold uses a series of goals and objectives based on a developmental continuum which changes to meet the needs of each individual child. In conjunction with Teaching Strategies Gold, CRCC incorporates Individual Education Plans (IEPs) and Individual Family Service Plans (IFSPs) to help every client reach their specific goals. With the use of adaptive equipment, theme-based curriculum ideas and a variety of interventions, the best possible outcomes are achieved — all while having fun.
Before- and after-school care
CRCC’s before- and after-school programs focus on building relationships, gaining independence and instilling in clients a sense of responsibility for themselves and their surroundings. Daily activities encourage positive peer interactions, communication skills, daily living skills, responsibility and what it means to be part of a community. An inclusive and loving environment is created with the use of adaptive equipment and teacher supports. As with all CRCC programs, IEPs are used to coordinate services with families and schools and help each child reach their full potential.
