 For children with lags, delays, or special needs the Ann Campbell Early Learning Center offers our Early Intervention program. This program is highly structured and goal oriented.

Each child has an Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP) documenting their strengths and areas of need. Teachers use these IFSPs to adapt lesson plans and activities to these areas of need, and ensure each child can participate and learn.

The period prior to kindergarten is an essential part of every child's learning experience. the Ann Campbell Early Learning Center Prep offers a fantastic supplement to Head Start for children with IEPs.

Prep is available to all children including: those with IEPs, those who had IFSP but are not eligible for IEPs, and those who are developing typically or above.

All children are evaluated using the Developmental Assessment for Children (DAYC). This diagnostic tool allows our teachers to ascertain each child's strengths and needs. With this information lesson plans and activities can be tailored to provide an individualized curriculum.
