About

Mission

Northland Early Education Center provides early education and therapy services for children who have special needs, as well as early education for children who have typical needs, in a fully inclusive classroom environment in order for them to reach their full potential.


Program Philosophy

All children belong.
All children are treated with respect and as unique individuals.
All children have special needs and special strengths and in an appropriate environment learn from each other as well as from the teaching staff.
A qualified staff and a nurturing environment are critical to a child’s development.
In order to meet the needs of the children, we must also meet the needs of their families.


Vision

Shaping the future of children through quality early education and therapeutic intervention while teaching compassion for diversity.

Northland Early Education Center assists children who have typical needs as well as children with special needs, in order for them to learn and develop to their full potential.  We maximize each child’s cognitive, social, communication, and daily living skills to enhance their quality of life.

This support is provided by a dedicated team of staff and board members, who facilitate early intervention therapy and education services, with innovative equipment in an inviting facility.
