Early Childhood Education

English EN Spanish ES


We offer year-round preschool programs with comprehensive educational and therapeutic programs serving children ages three to five with physical and/or developmental disabilities. Various services, assistive technologies and therapies are available to help children with specific needs become learners in unusually supportive environments.

Our educational evaluations help ensure that each child finds the placement that is right for them. Our preschool services include speech, physical and occupational therapy, psychology, adaptive equipment, vision training, assistive technology, as well as specialized classroom models including augmentative communication and computer assisted instruction.


Our Universal Pre-K program offers families a free, high-quality, family friendly learning environment for children of all developmental levels. A wide range of services is available, from play, music and art, sensory rooms, adaptive technology and physical education to feeding, physical, speech and language therapies.

Many of our locations have their own special offerings like a large indoor adaptive swimming pool in Brooklyn, 12 acres of open play space in the Bronx, easy access to shopping and parks in Manhattan, and outdoor and indoor adaptive playgrounds on Staten Island.

Integrated UPK classroom programming offers healthcare services, respite services, summer camp programs, Medicaid coordination, access to our TechWorks technology resource centers and SHARE lending libraries.

ADAPT Preschool and School-Age special education programs are made possible by the New York State Education Department and the New York City Department of Education.
