  • Welcome TO Meeting Street - School Age Programs!

    Meeting Street is where infants, preschoolers and children of all ages and abilities receive individualized attention from highly trained, dedicated educators, therapists, and staff who work as a team, sharing strategies and identifying solutions to bring out the best in each and every child.

    The word we hear parents use most often to describe us is, “caring” — caring that continues throughout the day and extends beyond our campus into neighborhoods and homes where we forge strong partnerships with families to help them best meet the challenges in their children’s lives.

    We help kids of all abilities.
    We’re known for helping children with multiple and severe challenges, however, we also work with children who have minor or no delays at all. Children in our school programs also benefit from the high teacher-to-student ratio and focus on individual goals. We work closely with parents. After all, families count on us for support and answers, and we have over 65 years of experience.

    The Power of Inclusion.
    At Meeting Street we believe in the power of inclusion and foster it in all we do. Our goal is to create an environment, and ultimately a world, where individuals of all abilities learn, play, work, and live together. Learn more about us...
