Mission Statement

Every year, Easterseals New York’s Bronx Child Development Center provides preschool special education to close to 200 young children with disabilities. At the Bronx Child Development Center, children ages 3-5 receive Individualized Education Plans and customized speech, physical, occupational, and play therapies to ensure their continued development. Here, students with physical or intellectual disabilities receive the highest-quality education and support services from experienced, caring teachers and staff. The goal of the Bronx Child Development Center is to prepare each child to enter the next grade level and eliminate the need for services in the future. This 12 month program ensures all children are in a safe and enriching environment throughout the summer months.

Description

This year, our goal is to show our staff how much they are appreciated! Our staff work through out the year, and face many struggles, from classroom behaviors to finding street parking, to their own personal lives. Yet, they still come every day and put in the full effort to make a difference in the lives of our students. We recently started a positive behavior interventions and supports initiative, one part of which is to motivate staff. We will be looking volunteers or donations to help support events and rewards to keep our staff going! We truly appreciate your help!
