For 2 weeks before the new school year began, staff were busily preparing their new spaces for our exciting move and participating in trainings. As the first day of school began, 32 students entered our new location located at 757 New Britain Avenue excited to start the new year. Many students and parents had positive praise for the new location such as: “It’s so bright”, “The classrooms are so big”, “I love the new library”.

As the students settled in for the day, they toured the building and tested out some new additions to our program, such as the sensory room and a new and improved pet center which both have a lot of traffic every day. Staff created a “crash pad” for students along with obstacle courses for gross motor activities which have been big hits. As our space has significantly improved and we have room to grow, we hope to be able to help more students as the year progresses.
