Early Childhood Programs: Ages Birth-5
For our early childhood programs, our goals include promoting social skills such as communication and turn-taking, gross and fine motor skills, balance and coordination and early independence skills. Through fun, interactive activities, our programs offer your child the opportunity to grow in a community-based setting. The skills they learn at this age will develop over the years into a positive, lifelong leisure lifestyle. All M-NASR programs are staffed based on the needs of the participants. A few of the programs for this area are listed below. For more information about M-NASR’s Early Childhood programs, please contact M-NASR at 847-966-5522 or see the current brochure.
