Specialized Preschool & Early Intervention Services
Specialized Preschool ServicesHarwood Center’s specialized preschool services are offered to children beginning at the age of 2 to 6 years old, who are experiencing delays in their development or have a diagnosed developmental disability.
Services are currently offered at three preschool locations and are delivered by highly qualified staff and experienced special education teachers. Classroom ratios are low and educational activities enhanced children’s physical, social, emotional and intellectual development.
Opportunities for inclusive activities with typically developing children are available as we are located inside preschool facilities.

Children may attend Harwood Center two, three, or five days a week, depending on availability. The school operates a full-day 12 month program providing a quality, early childhood education. Children may receive therapy services while at school from Harwood’s behavior therapists and/or the child’s speech, occupational, or physical therapists. We also welcome children with medical needs provided their nurse is with them during school hours.
Harwood Center strives to enable children with special developmental needs to reach their full potential by achieving and demonstrating more positive development in cognitive, social, language, motor and self-help skills. The education and early intervention services will be individualized to meet each child’s unique characteristics, strengths, pattern of development, and learning based on classroom observations, ongoing developmental assessment, and/or in consultation with family.
