The Parrish Early Care and Education (PECE) program opened its doors in November 2002. Since then, PECE has become an integral part of The Children’s Center, a partnership of community agencies whose collaborative vision is to develop a family-friendly environment where children are assisted in their development regardless of their abilities or socio-economic status. PECE offers quality care to children ages six weeks through five years. The overall goal is to provide services that will enhance the child’s individual health and growth, ultimately preparing students for kindergarten. PECE practices a model of inclusion by offering special education and therapy services to children with varying levels of development. The classroom teachers work closely with parents and use resources on site as needed from the exceptional education consultant, speech, occupational, physical therapists, and behavior consultants in order to optimize each child’s potential.
