Circle Preschool Program

Preparing children for long-term educational and social success


Circle Preschool Program (CPP) is a Reggio-inspired, trauma-focused treatment program that offers children high-quality, early educational experiences with intensive therapeutic interventions to support their development, academic and social-emotional growth, and healing from trauma experiences. Our Reggio-inspired approach places importance on children as competent learners who will use their interest-based studies to acquire skills including critical thinking and collaboration. CPP staff develop curriculas based on each child’s specific interests, emphasizing both the environment in which a child learns, and the social environment created by caregivers, staff, and peers. This program includes participation of children’s caregivers to empower them to help reduce the long-term effects of traumatic abuse and neglect for children, as well as build upon their strengths to reach parenting goals. Our aim is to work to integrate children into the mainstream classroom settings so that they are able to be successful in school and in life beyond CPP.
