0-5 Years DDTCS

0-5yrs Developmental Day Treatment Clinic Services (DDTCS)
Network of Community Options, Inc. operates two child care centers in Highland, Arkansas. The centers are quality approved and licensed by the Division of Childcare, Department of Human Services and Developmental Disabilities Services.

These centers offer hands-on learning environments including activities that are developmentally appropriate. Daily routine schedules follow Arkansas Department of Human Services, Division of Child Care and Early Childhood Education guidelines.

These centers offer an inclusive learning environment for children ages birth to 5 years. This means they work both with typically developing children and those with developmental delays. A parent can request that their child be evaluated for developmental delays. With a prescription from the child's primary care physician, the centers can test six domains of developmental growth - cognition, communication, gross motor, fine motor, social, and adaptation. If a child is found siginificantly delayed in two or more areas, the center will work with them one-on-one to achieve assigned goals throughout the day. If a child is in need of special services - such as speech therapy, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and counseling - the center will work with local agencies to accomodate each need. Because the centters work with developmentally delayed children, they honor the Arkansas Medicaid program.

Both centers participate in the Child Nutrition Food Program to provide a healthy, well-balanced breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snack.

All childcare paraprofessionals employed at the center are required to have a CDA (Child Development Associate) certification as well as CPR and First Aid training.

This center also offers regualr daycare services to typically developing children in the community.
