Education and Development for Life's Most Impressionable Years

At 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 8.

Unfortunately, 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.
