Helping Children Reach Their Potential
Family Development Center uses the Relief Nursery Therapeutic Model, providing a unique combination of individualized classroom and home-based developmental experiences for children 0-5 years of age. All aspects of the program focus on the specific issues of children from multi-stressed families who have experienced trauma, abuse, stress, or are at-risk for such experiences. Utilizing research-based developmentally appropriate practices with a focus on the importance of relationships, our Therapeutic Programs facilitates learning experiences and healing emotional support for these children and adults. Each teacher assumes the role of both classroom teacher and family support home visitor. This allows them to establish effective and supportive relationships with the children and the parents. Staff are attentive to providing this support through consistent interactions, as well as being available for immediate response in times of crisis.
