Therapeutic Early Childhood Classrooms

Some children, who are facing extreme challenges in trying to grow up safe and be successful, are enrolled in the therapeutic classroom. Each class has a small group of children and an abundance of teachers who are trained in special methods. Teachers, called Care Coordinators, help children learn how to:

  • Engage in safe and cooperative play
  • Identify and communicate their feelings
  • Think, reason and solve problems
  • And build respectful and caring relationships

Therapeutic Respite Care

Our Respite program is designed to provide time for parents to meet with case workers or counselors, run errands, or to give parents a break when they are crisis. Baby Respite is for children between 6 weeks old and 2 years, and Big Respite is for children ages 2 – 5 years. This service is available to Home Based clients and Outreach clients or for people who’s children are on the waitlist for a classroom spot.

Families may reserve time in the Respite Childcare Program when they have an emergency or are going through a stressful time and need short-term childcare. Children receive special care in small groups, led by trained and experienced caregivers.

Respite is available Monday through Thursday from 1:30 to 4:30 for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years. Please call (541) 779-5242 to refer yourself for this service. You will need to complete an orientation with our respite caregivers before you can begin using this service, so plan to sign up soon!
