The Children’s Early Learning Services/Program (CELSP)

The Arc’s CELSP helps children develop to their full potential through its home-based program (Early Intervention) and inclusive Preschool programs. 

Our talented, compassionate, and dedicated early learning staff and interventionists have decades of experience and are comprised of certified teachers, speech therapists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and a registered nurse.

Recognized for its innovative services and quality since 1962, The Arc’s Preschool Program can accommodate medically fragile children and those with other physical disabilities in the classroom setting. Approximately 25 percent of children attending The Arc’s preschool program require nursing support due to complex medical needs.  It is because there is a registered nurse on staff, that these vulnerable children successfully participate in our onsite preschool.

The Arc’s specialized instruction is delivered by early childhood, special education teachers. Programming is targeted to each child’s needs to support progress toward an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) or Individualized Family Support Plan (IFSP) goals.

The Arc’s Home-Based Early Intervention Program provides specialized services and therapies for infants and toddlers, age birth to five years old, with developmental delays or disabilities in their home or other natural environments such as a daycare.

Are you looking for ways to support your child in learning and growing? Our staff are committed to working collaboratively with you.
