Child Care Available for Typically Developing Children Ages 3 to 5

The child development experts at the Center for Autism and Related Disorders are excited to offer Kennedy Krieger employees a unique child care program for typically developing children ages 3 to 5 years.

We are currently recruiting seven children for our full-day Model Inclusion Child Care (MICC) preschool day care program.

The MICC program provides a play-based curriculum that emphasizes communication, social development, and early academic and literacy skills. The program is conducted in a safe learning environment with a low staff member-to-student ratio that allows us to meet the learning needs of each child.

Your child will have a unique opportunity to spend part of the day acting as a peer model for children with autism during assigned preschool groups led by certified speech-language pathologists. Our program’s experts have found that typically developing children who are outgoing, flexible and caring thrive in this environment. By acting as a peer model, your child can develop empathy and compassion for people with developmental disorders and help them realize their potential.

Highlights of daily activities include circle time, art activities, free play, rest time and literacy activities. Children receive two snacsk each day. Lunch must be provided by the child's parents or caregivers.
