Early Childhood Program

The Clear View School Early Childhood Program serves children ages 3 to 5 by laying the foundation for success in school. Students receive the full complement of therapeutic services while working on readiness skills—both academic readiness (pre-reading, pre-math, etc.) and social readiness. With small class sizes, teachers and clinical staff can quickly respond to student needs and ensure that the educational experience is rich with opportunity for exploration and growth. Recognizing that treatment is most effective when Clearview Early Childhood Programsthe whole family is involved, the Early Childhood Program insists on commitment to parental involvement; a student’s success depends on it. Parents are supported and encouraged through their own treatment provided by a Clear View treatment team and through advocacy equipping them with the skills necessary to best understand and help their child.
