Positive Prep

Our Positive Prep preschool readiness program provides a safe, supportive, play-based experience that fosters relationships, self-awareness, empathy, communication, and physical development. Help your child prepare for successful school and community experiences.

As part of our broader curriculum, Positive Prep is tailored to complement the Core Developmental Care Program. It is not provided as a stand-alone service; instead, it is prescribed based on careful assessment of each child's individual needs to ensure a well-rounded and effective developmental support system.

What is Positive Prep?

Our Positive Prep preschool readiness program is designed to offer a nurturing and engaging environment that enhances early childhood development through play-based learning. By focusing on fostering relationships, self-awareness, empathy, communication, and physical development, this program ensures a well-rounded preparation for entering school. The activities are strategically developed to support developmental milestones in a fun and inclusive setting, allowing children to learn and grow at their own pace.

Goals of Positive Prep

We seek to empower parents and school caregivers to support their children and students to reach their highest potential. We emphasize building authentic relationships to help individuals feel safe, competent, and able to participate more fully in the world around them. Key goals are to:

  • Promote working independently

  • Empower the child to be socially successful

  • Aid them in managing being part of a group

  • Support administrators, teachers, and parents in applying developmental principles to support participation

  • Establish a recommended care plan and environmental modifications to support development and growth
