Promoting Stability and Resiliency

Support our 2018 Back to School Drive

for Kid's Place and other Westside students

Our Kid’s Place Child Development and Treatment Center improves the social-emotional, physical, and intellectual development of children enrolled in its multi-age classes. We currently have 35 slots for children aged 18 months to 5 years. Kid's Place is a "Three Star" approved Child Care Service (CCS) "Quality Care Provider".

Students experience a safe, nurturing environment that enables them to grow academically and manage the stressors in their lives. We accommodate families whose children need a stimulating learning environment as well as additional therapeutic interventions.

 

Kid’s Place is one of a few centers in the area equipped to provide therapeutic care for children with special needs including Autism, ADHD, learning disabilities, emotional and behavioral problems. We work in collaboration with Harry Jersig Speech-Language-Hearing Center at Our Lady of the Lake University to provide language screenings as well as formal speech/language evaluations for children enrolled in Kid’s Place. In the fall of 2018, we will also launch a new partnership with the UTSA Autism Research Center to provide behavioral health screenings and coaching. 

 

Kid’s Place and our Family Support programs work seamlessly together. As part of our Kid's Place intake process, we assess not only the child’s level of developmental functioning but also the degree of stress in the family and the parents’ physical and mental health history. This detailed data collection allows us to develop individualized plans of care for our students.

High-Quality Care at a Low Cost

Thanks to our partnership with the Najim Family Foundation & the Greehey Family Foundation, we can provide tuition reduction for many of our Kid’s Place students. This means families of varying income levels can take advantage of our center.
