It's our belief that for children to have the best educational start and foundation, it is crucial to use a multidisciplinary approach. This means taking into account all areas of children's development, not just academically. We consider their social emotional development, see if additional supports may be needed, and also ensure the support of our "exceptional children" who may have certified Individualized Education Plan(IEP) or an Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP). By utilzing all of these different sources of information, or disciplines, we are able to best support children's development and overall success.
