Classes at Project Help are structured according to an activity-based model. This means that classes have a schedule of activities including times for free play, learning / interest centers, structured activities, group story and song time, snack, and outdoor play. The curriculum is based on the age-appropriate skills that are needed for children in all of the developmental areas or domains: cognitive, social / emotional, language / communication, gross and fine motor / physical function, and adaptive behaviors.
Each child participates according to his / her needs and ability. All children are assisted when help is required. Children who are typically developing are encouraged to use their skills and to develop to their full potential.
Project Help is a free of charge service for families of children, ages 15 - 36 months, with delays in Rutherford County.
For families who have children with no delays there are several different tuition plans and rates. Project Help's buisness hours are 7:30 - 4:30. We offer a variety of scheduling options such as: morning or afternoon options for the Early Intervention programs, as well as full time options for the Early Learning and Prep Programs.
Funding for Project Help is provided through the Department of Education, the United
Way of Rutherford and Cannon Counties, MTSU, and private donations. Individual contributions
are accepted through the Middle Tennessee State University Foundation - Project Help
