Education and Development for Life's Most Impressionable Years
HOPE Center we believe that childhood represents the most precious
time of life, when every human shapes most of his other fundamental
traits that immeasurably affect the remainder of their life. Consequently,
the Early Childhood Education Center professional staff is committed
to providing the highest, most personalized level of education and
training possible to children with special needs from 2-1/2 to age
this most formative time of life can be particularly challenging
to children of the inner city. Frequently, social and economic conditions
combine with special needs to negatively inflict tender lives. We
work hard to counter such childhood impediments, endeavoring to
provide each child with the skills and education needed for a long,
fulfilling life. Our conviction is that each child must be treated
and nurtured as an individual with individual needs. Therefore,
our mission is to match every child to programs and services specific
to his or her needs and requirements.
