Therapeutic Nursery

The Greenhouse Therapeutic Nursery and Primary classes provide structured, supportive environments which is not only emotionally rehabilitative and educationally instructive, but which also facilitates entrance into a less restrictive environment once a child is ready for grade school. The children leave the program more capable of organized behavior in their new educational settings. By providing intensive early intervention, our goal is to minimize the total time a child will need to spend in highly restrictive special educational settings.
