Children's Services support the mission of Avenues by providing programs for children and their families which encourage growth, understanding and achievement.  

Early Intervention

Helping parents understand their child's needs by direct participation, planning, and incorporation of a program (IFSP) 

into the family's daily routine (natural environment) to assist the child in reaching their maximum developmental potential.

First Friends

A preschool program, including before and after school care, which approaches the first years of your child's educational 

experience from a developmental approach.

Avenues offer an integrated Summer Camp which runs for 10 weeks each summer.
