Montessori Mentoring Classroom
Child Enrichment Center provides supplemental education services and has recently established a Montessori mentoring integrated classroom prepared by a teacher and a behavioral health specialist. The purpose of our classroom is to encourage children to develop independence, freedom within limits, and a sense of order. Children work individually or in small groups with specially designed learning materials, at tables or on mats on the floor. Our combined approach fosters rigorous, self-motivated growth for children 5-9 years old with and without special learning needs in all areas of their development -cognitive, emotional, social, and physical.
Sarah Haws-Taylor, DBH, LMHC, BCBA is a licensed mental health counselor and behavior analysts who provides counseling and behavioral treatment to children 5-9 years of age with special learning needs while attending our Montessori mentoring classroom. She provides 1:1 and social group pull-out services during each mentoring session. Treatment services to children with special needs are derived from the science of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). We use the most effective evidence-based teaching methods to help children make significant progress in language, play, social development, and classroom readiness skills. We are dedicated to working together with families to help them develop the strategies and tools they need to help their child continue to progress and grow for the rest of their lives.
Child Enrichment Center practitioners/teachers use observation, data collection, parent reports, and other documentation to provide individual recommendations regarding the progress of each child and provide parents with the strategies and resources to help their child continue to progress in other learning environments.
Attendance Policy - Advanced notice is required for all absences for both students and behavioral health clients. Children learn and grow best require consistent and regular treatment to progress and maintain new skills. To report an absence, please text us at (509)420-3442 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
