What Nazareth has to offer...

Preschool Special Education:
Providing a small structured environment to children aged three to five who are eligible to receive special instruction and related services. A multidisciplinary team of creative and highly talented individuals identifies each child's developmental needs and objectives, sets attainable goals and then works towards meeting those goals. Our special education program offers integrated therapy. We are particularly proud to offer Structuring the Education of Students With Autism Spectrum Disorder methodology of instruction to children who have been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders.

Head Start:
We have three classrooms offering a comprehensive educational opportunity to children aged three to five from income eligible families. This unique program combines typically developing children with children who have handicapping conditions in a fully integrated setting. We are committed to supporting and educating the family as a whole. Volunteers are welcome at all times.

We offer a wide range of support services and therapies to children and their families:

"Our staff and children take special pride in our warm and supportive environment that is wonderfully rich in cultural diversity and largely multi-lingual." We have gathered a group of staff members who are dedicated, hardworking and committed to helping each child that crosses our threshold. We have attracted a network of friends and supporters who are exceptionally generous with their time, assets and talents.
