Activities include “organized” free play, small group activities, outdoor play, social skills training, and weekly specialty classes such as cooking, music, Legos®, art, music and more. Opportunities for inclusion are available. Includes snack and homework help. This program is staffed by a certified special educator and an assistant, and is supervised by a certified social worker. 1:1 support is available as needed.
