Additional information

Therapeutic Day Care
The Partnership’s Therapeutic Day Care Program employs a wide range of best early childhood policies and practices to fashion a more effective and efficient delivery system. The Program uses a validated assessment process and appropriate, early mental health interventions that maximize the therapeutic impact of art and play therapy in natural settings and that enhance the capacity and skills of day care staff. The Therapeutic Day Care Program is currently being offered in center-based child care programs in a collaboration with the Cayuga County Community Mental Health Center. Additional information
