Welcome to CST Academy! An Illustrated Guide for Parents

Welcome to CST Academy, where every child’s journey is illuminated with boundless opportunities for growth and learning! We understand that choosing the right educational path for your child is a significant decision. This comprehensive guide is designed to introduce you to our unique approach to early childhood education, specifically tailored for children aged two to five with special needs.

Nurturing an Inclusive Learning Environment

At CST Academy, we believe in fostering an inclusive environment where every child feels valued, supported, and empowered to reach their full potential. Our multidisciplinary team of experienced therapists, educators, and specialists collaborates to create a warm and nurturing atmosphere that celebrates each child’s unique strengths and challenges.

Our Therapeutic Preschool and Kindergarten Programs

Our therapeutic preschool and kindergarten programs blend the best of early childhood education with evidence-based therapeutic interventions. We recognize that children with special needs require a personalized approach that addresses their individual goals and learning styles. Our curriculum is carefully designed to promote:

  • Language Development: Through play-based activities, social interactions, and targeted interventions, we help children develop communication skills, expand their vocabulary, and express their thoughts and feelings.
  • Feeding Skills: Our feeding therapy program addresses challenges related to eating and swallowing, fostering healthy eating habits and independence.
  • Behavior Management: We utilize positive behavior support strategies to help children develop self-regulation skills, manage emotions, and build positive relationships.
  • Motor Skills: Our occupational and physical therapy programs focus on improving fine and gross motor skills, coordination, and overall physical development.
  • Social Skills: We create opportunities for children to interact with peers, learn social cues, and develop friendships in a supportive and structured environment.

Individualized Approach to Learning

We understand that every child is unique, and their educational journey should reflect that. Our experienced team conducts comprehensive assessments to identify each child’s strengths, challenges, and specific needs. We then develop individualized education programs (IEPs) that outline clear goals, strategies, and interventions to ensure each child receives the personalized support they require to thrive.

Parent Partnership

We believe that parents are their child’s most important advocates and partners in their educational journey. We value open communication, collaboration, and active parent involvement. We encourage parents to participate in their child’s therapy sessions, IEP meetings, and school events. We also offer parent training workshops and resources to empower parents with the knowledge and skills to support their child’s development at home.

A Day in the Life at CST Academy

A typical day at CST Academy is filled with engaging activities, therapeutic interventions, and opportunities for social interaction. Our classrooms are designed to be stimulating and accessible, with a variety of learning centers, sensory materials, and adaptive equipment. Children participate in group activities, individual therapy sessions, and outdoor play, all under the guidance of our dedicated team of professionals.
