Programs & Services
Northland Early Education Center provides quality early education and therapy services for children age’s birth to five who have special needs and typical needs. NEEC’s very unique and special preschool offers the benefits of inclusion, low student-to-teacher ratios, and a Project Construct curriculum, creating an environment where children’s early development and kindergarten preparedness come first. Promoting equality, acceptance, and independence, it is the philosophy at NEEC that all children have special needs and special strengths. Children from all backgrounds and at all developmental levels learn at their own pace while in the classroom with their same-aged peers.
NEEC is nationally accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and by the Commission on Accreditation for Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). We are also an approved private agency certified by Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education and licensed by Missouri Department of Health. We work closely with the Missouri First Steps program to provide services to children who have special needs age’s birth to three. Those services include Occupational therapy, Speech/Language Pathology, Physical therapy, and Special Instruction. Our fully inclusive program gives children who have special needs the opportunity to learn by watching and imitating their peers, as well as teaching children who have typical needs the important life lessons of diversity, compassion and acceptance.
