Core Learning Program

Core Learning Classroom

Core learning begins to transition your child from play-based learning into an academic environment. Our curriculum is taught through large group, small group, and one-on-one. These core academics include Math, Literacy, Social-Emotional, Handwriting, Social Skills, and Science. In Core Learning, your child will begin to learn meal prep. Your child will bring groceries for the week and learn to prep simple meals for themselves.

Mission Statement

We believe that children thrive in a safe, loving, and developmentally appropriate environment. Our goal is to provide a developmentally appropriate environment where typically developing children can learn and grow alongside children with special needs. We strive to offer high quality, in house, therapies to the children and families enrolled in CDS.

We Believe

  • Play is extremely vital to health, physical, cognitive, social development, and growth in children. Children develop knowledge of their world through active interactions with caregivers, peers, materials, and events. Learning proceeds at different rates in each child and within each area. All learning and progress should be recognized and celebrated. 

Classroom Management

All our classrooms methods are based in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). Staff members will have training in ABA. Peer-mediated instruction will be taught. This involves teaching peers without disabilities ways of engaging children with special needs in positive and meaningful social interactions.
