Got to go on another school visit last Friday. There was more focus on early intervention and I was really excited to meet up with Jet Manalo, their Early Childhood Intervention coordinator.
Thanks to TinTan and RJ Quiroz for setting up last Friday's visit!
The door to Kids First.
One of the classrooms. The windows look out into the streets of Madrigal Business Center.
Another pic with the flash this time.
This is the next door classroom.
If I am not mistaken this is the Toddler classroom.
Room for OT activities. Loved the climbing wall.
Romp room for music and movement activities.
Kids first provides programs for toddlers and preschoolers and also has an early intervention program for kids with special needs. They also have therapists on site (OT and Speech) which allows for easier team collaboration.There was lots of space to move around and play. They also had smaller rooms for speech therapy and assessment. Thanks Jet for letting me visit and take pictures as well. Sorry again for being so incredibly late for the meeting (most people will tell you I am hardly ever late for anything). All I can say is, the south really isn't my stomping ground :).
