I think of The Children's Place as a greenhouse where wilted, broken plants come to bloom...and bloom they do!

How do I know if a child needs
Day Treatment service?

The majority of children who attend the Day Treatment Program are referred through the Children’s Service Workers at the Children’s Division.  However, some children may be referred by other social service or mental health professionals, or by area daycare and preschool programs.

Who works with the children in the
Day Treatment program?

The Day Treatment Program team consists of full-time lead teachers and assistants, licensed Masters level clinical social workers and counselors, occupational therapist, speech therapist, and consulting child psychiatrist.  Upon entering the program, each child is assigned a Child and Family Therapist who coordinates the services of the entire staff to best serve the child’s individual needs.

To qualify for the program, a child must demonstrate one or more of the following:

  • Developmental delays
  • Significant behavior problems
  • Problems resulting from pre-natal exposure to drugs or alcohol
