Child Care Services for Special Needs Children

Looking for Special Needs Child Care Services

In our organization, we are honored to serve special needs children and their families. Special needs kids require love, energy, and attention, just like any other child; and yet, there are also certain considerations that must be made when caring for children with special needs. In our network, we are proud to say that we have a variety of child care providers who are highly qualified to care for and educate special needs children. Also, we know that navigating child care options for a child with special needs can oftentimes be challenging, even overwhelming; and so we guide you through this process with unwavering support and dedication. We offer:

• A list of providers who have attended trainings on various topics including children with special needs in their programs.

• Consultation to help parents find child care services. Referrals will be made by specialized referral counselors with a child’s special needs in mind. Please contact (408) 487-0749.
