Sammie Gail Sanders Children’s Learning Center

Sammie Gail Sanders Children’s Learning Center is a preschool where children of all abilities are supported, encouraged and loved. It is a place full of laughter, accomplishment and acceptance where work is play and where little miracles happen every day!  The center provides early intervention and preschool programs to prepare children to enter public schools.

Early Intervention

Early Intervention is a facility-based program designed to provide one-on-one direct training to the child and the parent or caregiver. The intent of Early Intervention is to work with parents and caregivers to assist them with training the child. The parent or caregiver must participate in the program to learn how to work with their child at home. To be eligible for early intervention services, the child must be developmentally delayed and must be 6 weeks to three years of age.

Preschool Services

Pre-school service is a facility-based program designed to provide specialized services to children who have been diagnosed as developmentally delayed and who are not school age. School age is defined as having reached the age of five years before August 1st.

Early Intervention Day Treatment Clinic Services (EIDT)

Early Intervention Day Treatment Clinic Services (EIDT) may be furnished only by licensed Developmental Disabilities Services Comprehensive EIDT Centers, offering core services of evaluations and habilitation training. EIDT Services in qualified facilities may be provided only to outpatients when determined medically necessary for the child, through a written prescription by a physician, and a written plan of care.
