The child development experts at the Center for Autism and Related Disorders are excited to offer a FREE Pre-K Program, a program for children ages 4 and 5-years old.

Our full-day program uses the Connect 4 Learning Pre-K curriculum, a National Science Foundation-supported program, to encourage child development and learning across developmental domains. The Pre-K Program provides a safe learning environment with a low staff-to-student ratio that allows us to meet the learning and emotional needs of each child.

Weekly activity highlights include breakfast and lunch (provided daily), art activities, literacy, science and math activities, circle time, music time and free play.
